How to view/work with hidden folders in Exchange 2003

We are trying to migrate "scheduled emails" from the Mapilab product from one user's profile to another user's profile.  Mapilab's Toolbox stores the emails in a hidden folder of the user's exchange account.  

My question is how can we see these hidden folders? and how can we work with them? (copy them, export them, migrate to a new account)

PFDAVAdmin can see all the folders in a MAPI account. The permissions are given by adding someone or a group to a folder. Then they must have at Reviewer permissions in order to see the folder (Folder visible attribute) and copy the items (Read attribute).

First thing I would do is download PFDAVAdmin from Microsoft. On a blackberry so can't get the exact url for you.

Then with that tool, connect to the server looking at mailboxes. expand a user that has the product, then expand Top of Information Store. These are the folders normally associated with a mailbox although the hidden folders could be above that. Right click a folder and choose Folder permissions to give it a visible attribute to the select name/group.

I am not sure what you mean by choosing folder permissions to give it a visible attribte.  On the permissions screen there doesn't appear to be a hidden/visible flag, but there does at appear to be an attribute that could be set in the properties, but it doesn't give any indication what to set it to.

Can anyone shed any light on how to make the folder visible?

Try using MFCMapi or MDBVU32.  Both are utilities from Microsoft to view contents of Exchange mailboxes.  I prefer MFCMapi.  I have used this before to view hidden Blackberry folders.  Perhaps it may help you view other third party hidden folders?
