"Unable to Display Folder. MS Office Outlook could not access the spec ified folder."
Posted on 2004-11-27
I have a newly installed SBS2003 server w/exchange server 2003. New workstations w/ WinXP SP2 and Outlook2003 on all. Standard OEM install from Dell. Nothing out of the ordinary. 4 workstations connected as of now.
When I try to open the Public Folders in Outlook I receive the following error:
"Unable to Display Folder. MS Office Outlook could not access the spec ified folder location. The connectionto the MS Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."
Email is working fine. All the connections to the server are normal.
I started to check the permissions on the public folders of exchange, gave everyone full Access however this didn't work.
Perhaps a SP2 firewall issue? Do I need to make exceptions? shouldn't this be automatic during the domain joining procedure?
Any clues would greatly be appreciated.
