I am trying to Mail Enable a Public Folder on Exchange 2003.  Which seems to be a simple task. However I am receiving the following error when I attempt to access ANY public folder Properties or click on All Tasks in Exchange System Manger. The Error: The Token supplied to the function is invalid. ID NO 80090308E Exchange System Manager.  
I have read other posts but their solutions did not correct this issue.

Thanks! That did it. Nothing was set under Adsiedit.msc. But I did change the settings under the Default Website.
