Hi, I am having a problem with public folders. I have a pretty basic setup with one Exchange 2000 server on a win2k box. The problem that I am having is that when I set up new users they can not access an existing public contact folder via outlook or Internet Explorer. I just took over this job from someone else, and any old users that were set up previously have no problem accessing the public contact folder. However, any new users that I set-up can not access this folder it just comes up blank in Outlook. The 2nd part of the problem is that when I open Exchange System Manager and go down to the public folders branch to check the permissions for access to this particular folder, when I try to expand it I get the error "80004005" that "the operation failed". It then does not display the folders so I can't even view who actually is setup on the permissions list. I am assuming that the reason that these new users can't view the folder is because they aren't on the permission list? I was wondering if anyone had experienced this before. If you have any suggestions on how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated!
