When using Exchange Active Sync, my ActiveSync calender shows (multiple) duplicate entries. My company uses an MS Exchange Server as far as I know. Is there any bugfix in view?

Did you configure the account more than once ? (deleted on instance later). Can you check in calendar app how many "Microsoft Exchange" calendars you have there ? (Pulley menu-> Manage calendars)

There is more than one calendar. Though only one is visible and only one has colour orange. But now that you mention it, there are 3 calendars and I get 3 "orange" entries and 6 "black" entries. I kind of recognize a rule there... Is there a way to delete them with command line tools?

I have just "accidently" discovered .activesync/mfestorage.db can I delete it without side effects?

No, activesync does not store them, that looks like a failure in the calendar backend(mkcal) to remove them when account was removed.

So, I have deleted the db in mkcal and mfestorage.db. After that I have reconfigured my Exchange account. Then, when updating the email, it virtually does this forever and finally it "fails". At the end in the calender I have some events 3x and some are missing.

Fixed in Sailfish, Ohijärvi, account re-creation is needed, if you still have issues please comment here.
