I'm running Exchange 2007 and all client workstations run Outlook 2007.

I have a client who is unable to forward a task.  The task is located in a public folder that she has owner permissions to.  When she tries to forward, she receives the error message:  "Changes made to the item were lost due to a reconnect with the server."  I've attached an image of the error.

When I give myself owner permissions to the public folder and tasks, I'm able to forward them without an issue.  Thoughts?

The client rebooted and then she was able to forward tasks without the error above.  I'll leave the question open for a day in case anybody has any thoughts.  I'm curious what the problem was, or if it can be determined at this point.

Glad its sorted!

Any Connection issues, ideally, users should try the following first.
-Close and Reopen Outlook
-Log off and Log onto Network
-Reboot PC

Just to be sure might want to check her network connection and make sure she has a constant connection to the Network.

Come to think of it, she was complaining about her workstation running slowly.  When I checked the workstation's performance, CPU, memory, and disk baselines all looked good.  I had a feeling network connectivity issues were causing the problem.

Appreciate the insight!
