Can't mail enable public folders

Hi All

I'm an exchange full admin on this gig but not a domain admin.  I've created a public folder calendar through outlook.  It works fine but when I rightclick on it I have no option to mail enable it.  

The org is in native mode so I assume it isn't mail enabled by default.  Any ideas?

You are trying to mail enable through ESM, not through Outlook?

Version information would be nice as well.

I did try ESM - I got an unable to connect error.  It's possible its a network issue they have a lot of ACLs.  But the rest of exchange MAPI, S/IMAP, https and ActiveSync works well.

You can only mail enable through ESM. You cannot mail enable a folder through Outlook.

Hmm my problem is the other servers don't seem to have public folder stores - I'll try creating some on a test server and mail enabling those.

I'll also delegate to one of the domain admins temporarily and try his a/c.

Any other ideas?

Thanks Simon

Problem turned out to be a redirect on the front end server we were using to get FBA with OWA.
