In attempting to deal with a huge influx of spam, I am trying to configure GFI Mail Essentials to scan public folders. We have Exchange 2003 set up, and run Microsoft Server 2003. I discovered through this process that I cannot administer public folders from System Manager. In System Manager, when I click on folders, then try to expand public folders I get message c1030af7. I have already attempted the fix in article 839744, so please do not refer me to that. It did appear that the Exadmin virtual folder was recreated after I deleted it as they instructed. I could view it from IIS, and go into the Properties page. However, I could not view it in Exchange by going into Folders then Public Folders. If I drill down from our server name, to Protocols, then HTTP, I do see it listed there.
I have done alot of research, and here is what I know thus far. In IIS, the Exadmin, Exchange, and ExchWeb virtual servers are all within the Outlook Web Access web site which I assume is my default. They are configured for port 8080. We have an internal web site that uses port 80. Finally, we have WSUS configured for port 8030. All of this was confirmed by running the adsutil.vbs script from the command line.
If I try to browse to http://our
in I get error 404 ... though I'm not sure this is the correct way to browse to exadmin. I can browse to http://ourserver:8080/exchange
and access OWA where I was able to physically add a public folder. This folder does appear in my Outllook user folder, but as suspected I cannot see it from System Manager. I can find no way to force GFI to scan this public folder. Apparently, it has to create the public folder itself. Obviously, that's where my problem lies. When I attempt to have GFI create the folder, it never appears.
Would copying the Exadmin virtual server to the site that uses port 80 fix this? The documentaion regarding symptoms of incorrectly configured ports did not indicate that the error message I'm receiving would occur. Therefore, I have not attempted this yet.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
