I need some advice on how to receive calendar replies to primary mailboxes that were sent from a shared mailbox (could have worded this better)
Currently users at two different sites (7000 miles apart) have access to a primary mailbox and a secondary shared mailbox that users can create calendar invites. The mailbox is located at site 1 and the trouble we're having is that users at site are having performance issues when trying to open the shared mailbox.
I tried to rectify the issue by removing the mailbox at site 2 and only giving calendar access but i later found that users weren't being updated if invites had been declined (as declined invites will be sent back to the shared mailbox)
So if you understood the above please advise on a possible solution or if you need more then please let me know.
If there isn't a solution i'm going to have the move the mailbox to site 2 as we have more users there than we do here (which i really don't want to do)
Thanks for your help!

Why are users opening that calendar mailbox? Users should not open the calendar mailbox at all unless you, the administrator, are giving users access to be able to create meeting with the use of that mailbox.
I will give an example.
We have a conference room, lets call it conference room A. We give sally access to be able to schedule meetings in that conference room. Sally creates a schedule with the conference room as a member and any other person she wants to include. That conference room accepts the meeting invite automatically and everyone else will get it added to their own schedule. The conference room holds the meeting in its own calendar, and everyone else has a meeting invite in their own calendar, the person scheduling the meeting has the ability to view all meetings in that conference room to be able to schedule around other meetings going on that other people have access to. No one is opening the entire mailbox at all. You should be running cached exchange mode as well within outlook, this will help with speed and will only cause your mail clients to download new data, not the entire thing everytime they open mail.Go to the full post
