Delay between creating a mailbox enabled user and being able to open the mailbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • I create a user in Active Directory and within 60 seconds the RUS adds the mailbox attributes to the User object. Once I detect that the attributes are present I attempt to open the mailbox but it fails with an error of MAPI_E_FAILONEPROVIDER. This error will continue for 4 to 5 minutes after which time I can open the mailbox successfully. Does anyone know why there is a delay and if there is anything I can monitor to tell me that the mailbox is available? I have checked that the User attributes and security settings do not change again once RUS has run. I’m trying to avoid logging errors during this period.


    Thanks, Alan
