Exchange 2000 server up to date on patches. Problem with one user with Outlook 2000 and also a Treo 650 using Palm software. When his Outlook or Treo connects to the server, the STORE.EXE service goes nuts running at 95-99%. I turned on logging in Exchange and see that his account keeps trying to update the structure of the Public Contacts folder. He is of course denied but the server keeps retrying his update, denying it, retrying and so on. It brings the server to its knees.
User gets validated fine:
DOMAIN\User was validated as DOMAIN\User and logged on to the Public Folder Store "First Storage Group\Public Folder Store (EXchgServer)".
Then when his update request hits the server get an error in Application Log : under Access Control and Error 1030
firstname.lastname@example.org failed an operation on folder /O=DOMAIN/OU=FIRST ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=COMPANY CONTACTSAAF2B662417037ACBBE8A39C5DB18657003E8D on database "First Storage Group\Public Folder Store (EXchgServer)" because the user did not have the following access rights:
'Delete' 'Read Property' 'Write Property' 'Create Message' 'View Item' 'Create Subfolder' 'Write Security Descriptor' 'Write Owner' 'Read Security Descriptor' 'Contact'
Then we get
User created a new restricted view on folder Contacts on database "First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (CONSTRUCT2)".
So, it looks to me like something in his user setup or his account is corrupted and I want to clean him up. I don't know why his setup is trying to update the structure of the Public Contacts folder. Can I backup his Outlook info to PST files, delete his Exchange account, recreate his account and Import in his Outlook info to clean him up? Or is there a better way to get the problem solved?
