We have an Exchange 2010 server and an Exchange 2003 one (in different sites)

I am unable to access Public Folders on the exchange 2003 with users on the 2010 (the data is NOT replicated to the 2010)

the hiarchy works just fine but when I click on the folders I get


"Unable to display the folder....."

thanks

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Consider the Outlook version your 2010 clients are using.  Encryption requirements for Outlook 2003 and 2007 differ.  This entry may address your issue:

I can access all "local" public folders just not the ones on the other exchange server

@endital1097
MailboxDatabase on exchange 2010 is associated with the 2010 Public Folder, database on exchange 2003 with the 2003 Public Folder database, it down't work from OWA nor from Outlook
