Using Exchange?

by Dedlbug In reply to recurring appointment err ...

If you are using Exchange, try turning on Cached Mode. (maybe check with the Exchange Administrator first then) Open Outlook, "Tools" - "Accounts" - "View or Change Existing Accounts". Check to see if you account is Microsoft Exchange. If so, click "Change". You should see the Server name and Username fields. Notice the "Cached Mode" check box. If it is not checked, check it and Apply changes. Restart Outlook and see if that helps.

Otherwise, there could be an add-on that is not working properly that would need to be disabled or maybe the form cache needs to be cleared. First let's see if this is Exchange.
