I can confirm most of this bug, although I was using OWA instead of Outlook
2003. I cannot confirm the last part of step 9: when I restart Evolution it
seems to update the calendar properly for me. The deleted appointment is gone.
This bug may be much broader than what the problem description states.
Evolution does not seem to pick up on _any_ remote updates to the appointment;
whether deleting it, moving the time, changing the location, etc. Clicking the
"Send / Receive" button seems to have no effect, and I cannot find any other
means to force Evolution to refetch the calendar information.
This issue does not exist in evolution-connector-2.7.4. Evolution sees all of
my updates to the appointment as soon as I make them from OWA. It also sees
when I delete the appointment.
I will scour the upstream bug reports and see if I can locate the bug number(s)
that fixed this. There may be patches that I can backport.

Any word on comment 9? Wondering if this can get devel ack.
No, I'm afraid I haven't looked at this further.
Bugzilla isn't granting me permission to devel ack this for some reason, but
I'll put it on my list of bugs to investigate further.
Oh, apparently I do have permission now.
I found a couple of upstream bug reports that may be relevant, but I've not
found any patches. It appears this issue was resolved in the 2.5 development cycle.
I will continue to search.
No update yet, I spent most of the day drilling into bug #199751.
We believe this bug will be fixed in the Evolution 2.8 upgrade option scheduled
for RHEL 4.6. Please feel free to reopen this bug report if the problem still
exists in Evolution 2.8.
