I need to delete a Public folder from Exchange2000 server. The only owner of the folder user account has been deleted from Windows2000 Active directory. I have administrative rights to Win2K / Exchange.

Are you unable to take ownership via the Exchange System Manager by adding yourself? Don't try and do it in Outlook... but in ESM instead.

If that doesn't work, create an account, put it in the "Exchange Domain Servers" group, log in with that account, and try again in ESM.

When i go to \Administrative groups\First Administrative group\servers\SERVER\Public folder store\Public folders\ , right click on the folder and attempt to go to properties, I get 'The operation failed. ID no: 80004005 Exchange Ssystem Manager'.

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Wa-a-ay past that one. Stil can't delete. I already have full rights (btw, proper article is http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;289492 ). Outlook gives me gibberish
"This error is usually a result of trying to delete more than 4,000 messages at one time.  Outlook can delete no more than 4,000 messages when it is working with a server message store.

To avoid this error, delete fewer than 4,000 messages in a single operation.

More information about this error message online.
"

The folder is empty.
