I?ve seen this problem once, and the problem was from the computer where
outlook 2003 installed.

Can you try this from a newly installed computer, and make sure you have
cache mode disabled

Subject: [exchangelist] Problem: contactitems in public folders are Read
 Hello all,

I have a very strange thing. We have public folders in which we collect
contactitems of contacts. Now there are some items (about 100) that have
been exported from the old exchange server to a pstfile and imported on the
new exchange 2003 server. Now when users open the items, the items are read
olny. You can see that in the title bar, it sais [Read Only]. When users
create new items that items can be edited etc. But the old ones not.
I already checked and tried changing the directory rights, client
permissions, and administrative rights.
I made users administraters and full owners, but still the items are Read
Only. What else can I try?
The server has Exchange 2003 SP1 running on windows 2000 server..
