Exchange 2000 SP3 on Windows 2000 SP3
Public Folders and Email Accounts were migrated from a decommisioned
Exchange 5.5 SP4 box

We are trying to delete some public folders and can not.

In exchange system manager we are getting the following error message:

Q282125 - The Object is no longer Available. Press F5 to refresh the
ID no: 80040e19
Exchange System Manager

All Services are started, not clustered, virtual directory is fine, no
host header.

The machine is the only exchange box in the Org.  All access to other
folders work via OWA and Outlook XP clients.

Looking in ISM or Explorer and trying to delete, I get "Can not remove
folder, the directory is not empty' although it is empty when looking at
it. Permissions seem ok.
I used mdbvu32.exe to go into the public folders and was able to kill
one of the 3 folders. The other 2 give corruption errors when trying to
access and do not respond to the DeleteFolder command from mdbvu32.
