Posted this on the NTSYSADMIN list but haven't had a response yet, so I
thought I'd try here.


I'm getting the following message on several systems - "Unable to
display the folder. Microsoft Office Outlook could not access the
specified folder location. The operation failed."


I've narrowed it down to being specifically linked to Office 2003 SP1,
since if I uninstall O2K3 and re-install but do not apply SP1, the
program works fine.  The moment I install SP1, I get the above message
and cannot access any public folders.  I remember there used to be a
similar problem with Outlook 2002, but I thought they'd fixed it.  Is it
back with SP1 for O2K3?  Google turned up a few posts in various places
reporting the same problem with SP1, but no solutions.  Hoping someone
here has come across this and has a solution, or even some suggestions.


All these computers are running Windows XP with all current updates
except SP2; the one computer that does have XP SP2 installed is showing
the same behaviour with O2K3 SP1.
