exchange 2010 public folder not showing on exchange 20003 mailbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have public folder on exchange 2003 and separate public folder on exchange 2010. On exchange 2010 user mailbox, I can see both 2003 and 2010 public folders. On exchange 2003 user mailbox, I can only see 2003 public folders. It is not the permission issue as I have given the user "owner" right and see not able 2010 public folder inless i move 2003 user mailbox to 2010 exchange.

    Appreciate if anyone could help me if to point me to directions or any hotfix I can run?

    Thank you very much.

  • Are you using OWA or Outlook to view the public folders?

    If you're using OWA, the reason you can't see the folders is that OWA in Exchange 2003 uses WebDAV, which is no longer present in Exchange 2010.

    If you're using Outlook, you'll need to use the troubleshooting logs to determine the cause of the problems.

    It could be related to Outlook trying to connect directly to 2010 mailbox server instead of CAS. Because normally the mailbox server is installed without the CAS role, it does not allow a direct Outlook connection. Or it could be something else, like authentication.
