We are finding that users are having problems changing existing contacts stored in our public folders. They can create new contacts and them modify those, but cannot make changes to existing contacts.

We are using Windows 2003 server with Exchange SP2 and outlook 2007

When I look at the public folders in the exchange system management, ie when I click on the Folders > Public folders we get :-

The SSL certificate server name is incorrect. ID no: c103b404

When I click OK, we seem to progress ok. Not sure if this is related, but would really welcome any assistance in resolving this extremely frustrating problem.

Many thanks.

When we try to modify certain contacts, we get the foloowing message :-

Your changes cannot be saved bacause you don't have permissions to modify some or all of the items in this folder.

Do you want to save a copy of this item in the default folder for this item?

Any ideas?

Ideally there should not be problem with the Outlook wen access,

but yes you can just remove SSL from  Exadmin, Public virtual Folder and restart the IIS.
