email delay in mail enabled Public folder

I have a SBS 2003 SP2 server and have mail enabled a public folder to recieve mail for office@"domain".com. All users have Outlook 2003 and are connected to the exchange server. All users except one are able to open the public folder and view new messages. The one user is seeing the same new messages delayed 1 day when she opens the public folder in her Outlook.

Right that makes more sense. So her account is working, permissions are working, it is simply that outlook is not syncing the public folder for 24 hours rather than the message is not there.

Put that folder in her favorites and tell outlook to keep a local copy of the public folder favorites. I hope this will make outlook update the public folder more frequently.

Does she have any sync issues in her mailbox? These might tell you why outlook is not syncing the mailbox.

Can that user see it in webmail?

Did you add permisions for each user or a group?

Yes,
The user can see the folder in exchange over the Internet.
The permissions were set the same as the other users.
I just logged on as her to her exchange over the web email and I am seeing email recieved today that was send yesterday.

So can she see the current files via web based outlook but not in desktop outlook?

No,
Both are showing the delay.

Can you recreate the issue. if you mail enable another public folder and add the same users does it happen again? It is odd that you can't see it in webmail.

OK,
What I said before wasn't true.
I just sent a test message to the folder and it showed up in the web-outlook but isn't in the desktop outlook. All of the other desktops see the test message.
