The description for Event ID ( 1639 ) in Source ( MSExchangeCDO ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: EX:/O=GENOVESE LICHTMAN JOBLOVE & BATTISTA/OU=MIAMI.

I receive this warning from every minute, to every five minutes, to every hour, at any time really...anybody have any ideas?

From the little information you have provided it looks like a MAPI error. Something cannot talk to the Exchange server. I presume that this is appearing on an Exchange server?
You haven't got Outlook installed on this machine as well have you?

Otherwise need full details of the system:
Exchange server version including SP and roll ups (if applicable)
Host OS - including SP
Is the server a member server or a DC?
Anything else installed on the machine?

This is actually a warning I got on the file server, the Exchange server is on a different server.  I found some info on a different site, and it does look like a MAPI error.  The data  of the warning is 80004005 which is CdoE_CALL_FAILED.  The Exchange server is 2003 w/ SP1.  Outlook is not installed on either server.  The file server is a DC with 2003 server.  The file server has BlackBerry Enterprise Server on it.  This uses a different MAPI profile which I had to get from the Microsoft website.  Perhaps this is causing a problem?  I have teh BES installed on other servers and I do not get this warning.

Just to mention, not sure if this has anything to do with this.  On the Exchaneg server, there is an error I get which seems to have the same error code of 80004005.  The error is..MSExchangeFBPublish, ID 8207, "Error updating public folder with free-busy information on virtual machine MAILSERVER. The error number is 0x80004005."

Thanks in advance you for any info you can provide...

BES is where I would be looking now. If Exchange isn't installed on the machine, but the error is MAPI (And I am pretty sure it is) then you need to look at what is using MAPI on the server. If it was Outlook then I would usually suggest ripping it out totally so that the MAPI is also removed, rebooting and reinstalling.

That other error I don't think is related. Check that there is replica information for the Free/Busy system public folder in ESM.

I've also just started getting this Event 1639 on a Win2k server running Exchange 5.5.  I agree that BES appears to be involved, as we have BES pointing at mailboxes on this server also.  I've just joined a new exchange 5.5 server into the site, which is what appears to have started the events.

I recall from the original BES installation that there was a requirement to apply a CDO hotfix to the Exchange server, which is detailed in KB article Q312273.  I'm going to look into reapplying this hotfix to see if it makes any difference.
