New Exchange server has error when administering Public Folders

I have added an additional server to the existing Exchange 2003 organization.  It is going to hold only Public Folders.  I removed the one Mail Store on the server so that it only has the Public Folder store on it.
I have been trying to setup up replication to this server in order to rehome them off the primary Exchange server.  In Exchange manager, I am selecting any public folder.  I can add the server to the replication tab.  However, when I click on security and then Client Permissions, the following error is displayed:

Your profile is not configured.
An unexpected, unknown error has occurred.  Microsoft Exchange Server Information Store
ID no: 8004001-0521-00000000

ID no: c10500000
Exchange System Manager

If I right click on the folder, choose Manage Settings, I get the same error message.

If I try both of these actions on the primary Exchange server, I do not get any errors.

Correct on the error message:

Is Outlook installed on this server? If so, remove it. If not, looks like the mapi profile is damaged.

It appears the server was corrupt.  I rebuilt it.  In addition, I left the default user mailstore on the server with no users in it.  So far, the server is working fine.
I just had this exact issue.  I tried many thing to get it fixed but the one thing that did it was creating a new public folder.  That for some reason fixed it.  Hope this helps someone out there.
