Public Folder Conflict Message

We have a public folder (Exchange 2007) that is setup as a task list.  Several people have access to the folder and make edits on the tasks.  As a owner of the folder I often recieve an email stating that there is a conflict that multiple edits have been made.  I am being told by the users that they were not in the tasks at the same time, although I think they were.  I am not sure how to tell if they were or not other than the message which says The conflicting edits have been attached to a conflict message in "TASK LIST FOLDER".

However I do not see the conflicting edits?  Am I missing something?  Can I tell if and who the people were that caused this?

Thanks

While that is a helpful link, I am looking for a way to tell who edited the task at the same time.  Who caused the conflict.  Is there a way to do that?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

When this happens more than one person has made a change to the Public Folder.  The conflict alert is then sent to all of the Public Folder owners (including you ias the Admin).  There's no way that I have found to determine who actually made the last edit.  You can get this message also if someone was messing with the permissions.  It's best practice to limit the amount of owners for a public folder if you can.  On my network I only allow one owner per folder.  Hope this helps.........
