    Remove/Replace Terminated Employee Name from Appts (Outlook 2002)

    We recently had someone leave our firm and all of that persons appointments were sent from the former employee's calendar by a delegate to others so that all cases would be covered. Consequently all of the appointment's now say Jane Doe sent on behalf of John Smith. The unit manager now wants to know if the John Smith can be removed or changed to the Firm name. Has anyone ever attempted this before?

    Thanks for any help.

    Re: Remove/Replace Terminated Employee Name from Appts (Outlook 2002)

    See the discussion in <!post=this thread,213456>this thread<!/post> - looks like it can't be done by client users, and we didn't get someone with Exchange Server expertize to propose a way the Server Admin might be able to do it. It wouldn't be too hard to write VBA code to duplicate the meeting with the active user (the Outlook client user) as originator, then delete the old meeting, but I'm not going to be able to get to it.

    Re: Remove/Replace Terminated Employee Name from A

    In theory this could be done from the Exchange Server, but this in turn depends on which Exchange Server version it is. Basically, Exchange Server (2k and upwards) links in to Active Directory. This means that there would be a fair number of other issues since an entire new user profile would have to be created. From a personnel POV, a (recurring) announcement to all would probably be far more practical solution. HTH
