Random staff members using Outlook client are not displaying the contents of certain public folders. All permissions look fine yet when opening the public folder calender, nothing is displayed. They can add their own meetings yet no one can see them.

Windows 2003 Server
Exchange 2003 SP1
Outlook 2003

Any ideas?

Any reason you are still on Exchange 2003 SP1?
Is it always the same public folders with the problem?

We're set to upgrade to SP2 in the 'near future'.

As far as we can tell; its random folder for random users. I've seen multiple posts regarding this issue yet no answers.

The near future? It is has been out for two years. I hope the server is not exposed to the internet and Windows patches are not treated in the same way, otherwise your server will not be yours for much longer.

There was work on Public Folders in the service pack, while you are missing the service pack that will always be a cause for concern.

Public Folders have been known to get corrupt in the past, and usually need to be recreated and the content moved around - I usually suggest the content is moved through a mailbox (so copied in to a folder on a mailbox first and then copied in to a new folder).
