Exchange 2003 - Outlook 2003 Conference rooms set up as resources with individual mailbox/calendars. Default users are 'authors' so they can book meetings either directly or via email request. Conference rooms configured to accept or decline meetings. Administrator has 'editor' rights so she can move meetings when higher priority arises. She has all the calendars open and drags meetings to new location. Once she moves a meeting, it is no longer 'owned' by the original owner and cannot be edited or cancelled by him. Is she doing it wrong? Is there a cleaner way to relocate a meeing, short of contacting the original organizer and having him doing it himself? Is there any way to move someone else's meeting without taking ownership? Is there any way to change ownership once it has been changed by this method?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Having the meeting orgaizer make this change is the only “clean” way to do this as far as I know. I know that involves contacting the organizer and asking them to make this change, which can be a tedious hit-and-miss phone tag scenario and a royal pain in the neck sometimes, but it truly is the only way to make this a “clean” change, unfortunately. Microsoft made it a near impossibility to change meeting organizers and although that is a good thing in most instances, sometimes it really causes difficulties.
