I have moved all public folders from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010.  Since doing so, If I open the Public Folder Management Console, and click on the properties of an Mail enabled public folder, I get the following error when I click on some of the tabs of the folder:

This is the error:

The properties on this object have invalid data. If you click OK, default values will be used instead and will be saved if you do not change them before hitting Apply or OK on the properties page.  if you click cancel, the object will be displayed read-only and corrupted values will be retained

The public folders seem to be working fine.  I can send mail to them fine.  Any ideas on why I am getting this message.

Most likely it is because of spaces in the public folders aliases.  Exchange 2007/2010 do not support spaces in the aliases.

Thanks.  This document seems to be for Mailboxes not public folders.  Would public folders be done the same way?

Lets say I have a public folder called "Human Resources"  There is a space in the Alias name, which is why I am getting this error.

Can you provice be an example of the syntax to change this via the exchange management shell?  What I am typing in isn't working for some reason.  Thanks.

Actually the issue applies to all mail-enabled entities (mailboxes and public folders alike).

Try using:
Get-PublicFolder | Where {$_.Alias -like "* *"} | ForEach-Object {Set-PublicFolder $_.Name -Alias:($_.Alias -Replace " ","")}

Open in new window

HTH,

If you want more reporting during the process, you can check this previous question on EE.  It has a few versions of the same script.  You'll need to save it as a ps1 file.
