I am running Windows 2000 with Exchange 2003 installed.  I have a shared folder: MCParts that until recently was accessible byt a particular user on a patecular computer.

Now, when the user tries to access the shared folder, they get an "Access denied" message.  he user has full rights in share permissions and also security.  When I log on as the user on another computer they can access the folder with no problem.

What is causing the access denied message only for a peticular computer and not for the user in general?

Has the user who's having the problem changed his/her password recently?  If so, there is probably a cached password on that one computer that is conflicting with his/her new domain password.  You need to delete the cached password.  In order to do this you need to have administrative-level access to the workstation.  So, if the user does not already have administrative access, you will need to log on first as a local administrator and give that user administrator access temporarily.  Then, log on as the user, go to Control Panel/User Accounts, click the Advanced Tab, then click Managed Passwords.  If there is a cached password, you'll see it here and you can delete it.

(Then don't forgot to remove the local administrator rights from the user's account if applicable.)

Hope this helps!
