Exchange mailbox in Outlook folder permissions

Hi all,
I have a user with Outlook 2007 with a Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 mailbox configuration; TCP/IP connectivity and everything seem to be working fine.

My question: The user created some folders below the inbox some time ago (maybe years ago) and the folders appeared to be shared (see attached image), the problem is that when I go to the folder properties and try to change the folder permissions (for instance remove from the permissions window a user that doesn’t exists anymore and appears as a bunch of characters instead of a name) it appears gray out and I can’t remove it.

Any idea how to remove the sharing permissions from these folders?

If you are having issues removing the share permissions...

If sharing is no longer required....

Since best practice is to keep such folders in a Personal Folder, Not in the Mailbox

I would create a PST.
Create the same folders in the PST
Move the emails over

Once moved, delete the folders from the Mailbox

I did know what the expert said, but I will take this as a confirmation that nothing else can be done.

But Geeze why the B?
