Cannot Decommision? Public Folder warnings
Posted on 2007-11-26
I run Exchange 2003 with Service Pack 2 and it's almost impossible to get this stupid public folder crap off it so I can decommision the server.
When I try and delete the PF Store I get this error.
"It is acting as the default store for one or more mailbx stores or users
"It is used by one or more offline address lists to maintain system folders"
Now when I go to Public Folders I don't see anything. It has been moved. When I go to the replication tab I see "system configuration and public folder hirearchy. So when I go to the TREE that it's associated with I see that under "Status" of the System Configurationg and top level public folder tree, I still see our excchange server in the server list.
What exactly am I suppose to do to finally delete this thing?
I also noticed that our public folder store no longer receives emails although it says "Delivered Message" after sending in Outlook with a delivery receipt. I'm lost
