Hi Steve,


This does sound like a permissions problem, although I assume from your
mail that it "just went like that".


I have had similar problems with delegating authorities, and while
permissions mostly appeared correct, removing them (the user in
question) and re-populating them usually fixed it. Also beware that
permissions flow down the security tree, and implicit as well as
explicit denys take precedence over allows. Ex2k can be a little more
helpful if you make a mistake with an error something like "The
permissions on Inbox are incorrectly ordered, and may cause some entries
to be ineffective", but don't rely on it.

Hi folks


One of my clients has a small problem:))


When his Outlook 2000 is opened, all folders are fine except for the
inbox, which shows up as a grey page with unable to show folder in it.,
If however, you do a find in the inbox, all inbox mail is visible within
the find dialogue box, where it can be read and replied to etc.


A complete uninstall and reinstall of office has failed to correct this


Has anyone ever came across this before, and if so how is it fixed.


Outlook 2K SP3, EXC 2K sp3 on WIN2k SP3.
