We migrated email from exch 2003 over to exch 2007. We set the replication for the public folders to the exch 2007 server and left it that way for 3 days. After all of the email was migrated and we verified that the public folders were mirgated over by comparing the sizes, we started to uninstall exch 2003 from the other server. Now since we did this, when clicking on the public folders via outlook 2007 the m following message is coming up:
The set of folders cannot be opened. Microsoft exchange is currently busy.
Any help would be great.

Has the exch 2k3  server been removed completely?

Check the 'connection status' (ctrl + Right click on OL icon in System tray) in Outlook and check which server the OL connects for PF.

Let us know how it goes.

You need to remove the 2003 Replica from all the public folders.
You chould be able to do this via powershell and recurse the command to run through all folders.

Get-Publicfolder "\top-level-folder-path" -recurse | set-publicfolder -replicas "Server02\PFDatabase02","Server03\PFDatabase03"

Set the correct servers only in your command, and the top-level to be where your folders begin.
Test by replacing set-publicfolder with get-publicfolder, and it should traverse all your folder names.

I found the issue . Somehow the mailbox database was pointing back to the old server again for the public folders. Not sure how that changed since it was poiting to the new server. I think to many hands in the cookie jar,,,, if you know what I mean?

Do you mean the default public folder server setting on the Exchange Database?
