Are you the organizer of the meeting? Can you simply delete the meeting from your calendar?



Yes the user is the organizer and when he deletes the meeting it does not send out a cancelation to the other users in the meeting.


If you open the Calendar tab and then select the meeting, there should be a down arrow (drop down) under delete and you should be able to " send the response now" based on the occurrence or series depending. Is that not sending out the cancellation notice?
