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

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

what public folder database is assoicated with the mailbox database the mialbox resides on

get-mailboxdatabase | fl name,publi*

if the database is assoicated with a 2010 pf database, owa will not work

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

You’ve updated all your end user’s email signatures. Hooray! But guess what? They’re playing around with the HTML, adding stupid taglines and ruining the imagery. Find out how you can save your signatures from end users today.

Are your Exchange 2010 clients using Outlook 2003 or 2007?
