Thanks for your reply.
There is just 1 BES and 1 Exchange server. I've searched the Logs folder for "delayed state" and came up empty.
I probably should have 2 different threads for these problems...it's one of those things; you never know if they're going to be related so you post it all in one place to cover your bases!
But the larger problem is the Meeting Invitations, and I can reproduce that on my test BB, so we probably should focus on that here. I need to get with the user that reported the batch mail deliveries and get more specifics.
I restarted the BES server and some previously affected users received a test Meeting Request sent afterwards. So something was up there. Some users still do not receive meeting invitations, however.
I have a test phone that's among those affected. The Meeting shows up in the Calendar with "Show Time As" set to "Tentative", and the reminder pops up at the appointed time. But the Invitation e-mail, which remains in the Inbox in Outlook, not accepted, is nowhere to be found on the BlackBerry.
I also find on my test phone that Appointments I create on the BB are not synced back to Outlook, and 2 other affected users so far confirm that. I suspect they are symptoms of the same problem.
I did have at least 2 affected users who were able to Decline the test meeting after the BES restart, so I know some have normal functionality.
As I say, wipe/reactivate doesn't solve it, so my inclination is to suspect BES. I do not know why some users and not others, but we're at 10 of 125 users now reporting the problem. A good many here seldom use the Calendar on their BBs, at least not interactively, and may not be aware they have the problem, and I have not polled all users at this point to keep the noise level down, so the real percentage is likely higher.
But I don't know where to go from that.
