Free Busy not working on Exchange 2003

I have 1 Exchange server Exch01 (Exchange 2003 ENT SP2). Free Busy has been working well all the while.
Recently I have added 2 more Exchange servers, Exch02 and Exch03 (Exchange 2003 ENT SP2).

Both new servers has this error message:
Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      MSExchangeFBPublish
Event Category:      General
Event ID:      8207
Date:            3/11/2011
Time:            6:51:42 PM
User:            N/A
Computer:      Exch02
Description:
Error updating public folder with free-busy information on virtual machine Exch02. The error number is 0x80004005.

For more information, click http://www.microsoft.com/contentredirect.asp.

So I have followed the steps in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822444/ to no avail.
Now Free Busy is not working on Exch01 too, mailboxes in Exch01 cannot see any free busy information anymore.

When I goto Exch02 or Exch03 ESM to check on the Free busy folders, there is this error message:
The mail proxy for this folder cannot be found. This may be due to replication delays. The mail enabled pages will not be shown. ID no: c1038a21

I'm thinking of trying Method 2 from this arthicle http://support.microsoft.com/kb/328740, but I'm afraid that it might do more harm.

Can someone help. .
thanks

thanks. ... I have recreated the "Default Offline Address Book" and pointing mailbox stores to the new one also deleted 1 old exchange computer name from AD, the problem it still here. I'll just wait for the maintenance to run later and check again tomorrow. If you have more ideas, please share....

btw, most of the solutions here are for Exchange 2007/2010 ... I need solutions for Exchange 2003 actually..
Thanks.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I found that from the Exchange System Manager, the Exchange Domain Servers were denied Receive As Permission at the Exchange server level. I am unable to change this permission as it is inherited from the parent object. When I moved up its parent containers, I could not see any deny Receive As permission imposed on the Exchange Domain Servers group.

Should I change that permission from Deny to Allow?
How can I remove the deny Receive As permission for the Exchange Domain Servers at the server level?

I have fixed the problem on exch01 and 02 by edit the permissions on almost everything, there were many missing permission, I couldn't fix exch03 that way, so I have reinstalled exch03 ... everything is working now, no more errors in event viewer.
