Searching full-text index on Exchange server

I have a small asp page, which I am using to test the full-text indexing of the Exchange Server. According to the instructions, I must run this page from the public folder store. In the IE URL field, I type:

http://myservername/public/SEARCH/search.asp

But, I get a 403 Forbidden error. If I save a .htm page in the same folder and run it, it opens, no problem. I think the problem relates to the fact that outside of the Inetpub web root, there is no web server involved and IE does not know what to do with the asp page. The asp page and instructions I am referring to are viewable at:

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=259849

Does someone have a clue why the instructions clearly say to run the asp page from an Exchange public folder and not the webroot? When I run this from inside the webroot, the asp page runs and produces:

----begin----
----end----

which would indicate the query was simply not successful. But still the fact remains: the instructions did not say to run the page from the web root, but from a public folder. Why? I have no idea, actually.

Help!

I made some progress and perhaps can ask a more informed question. My goal is to do full deep searching of the public folder tree. I am using the CONTAINS keyword in the SELECT statement:

<?xml version="1.0"?> <searchrequest xmlns="DAV:"><sql>select "DAV:displayname" from "http://myserver/public/docs" WHERE CONTAINS(*,'"fox"')</sql></searchrequest>

and  I read that this should then avail itself of the full-text index I built on the exchange server to perform this query. It does not return all the matching items though and does not appear to be doing a deep traversal either. Does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks,

Rich

I have learned that it is impossible to do a  deep traversal of the public folder tree. It is only possible to do it on non-MAPI trees. According to the Microsoft tech, this is by design.
