Orphaned Shared Folder on Outlook 2003, how do I get rid of it.
Posted on 2005-03-14
I had another user's inbox opened in my outlook client as this user granted me access by sharing his contact, calendar etc... The user's e-mail account has since been deleted and when I click on the shared inbox I get the following error:
"The set of folders could not be opened"
This error usually appears if the OST or PST file you are using is:
Protected with file permissions
On a share on a server and the network is down
To correct this problem, store the OST or PST file on the local computer.
You may also want to run the scanost.exe and scanpst.exe tools to verify file integrity.
More information about this error message online.
I also went into options /change e-mail accounts/more settings/advanced and the user is not listed in "open additional users folders"
How can I get this ophaned shared folder out of my outlook??
