I have a mix 2003 and 2007 Exchange environment.
I cannot access the public folder using the direct url link, ie: http://bc-cas01/public.
It comes back with "page cannot be found"
bc-cas01 is the CAS and Hub Transport.
However, i can access the public folder using Outlook Client. I can also access it if I fully logs into OWA.
All Exchange 2007 are on SP1. I already rebooted all servers.
Thanks for your help

Here's the IIS log from the CAS server:

Since you have SP1, you dont have to access it using the /public URL. You should be able to see it in the bottom left hand side corner. Click on Public folders.

Have you configured Public Fodler replicas on your Exchange 2007 SP1 Server.
