Exchange 2010 public calendar emails

We are on exchange 2010 and have had some public calendars configured so that it sends a group of people an email anytime something is changed added or deleted.  All was well until last night when we rebooted our exchange server and applied some non exchange related patches.

Recently we decommissioned our 2003 server which i suspect may be the root of our problem. This is the first time our 2010 server has been rebooted since the decommissioning of the 2003 server.  Another interesting fact is that when i look at the "Send as" permissions they all are showing and SID instead of a user account which leads me to think that a import user account may have been lost when we decommissioned our 2003 server.

Does anyone have any ides on this?

about the mailbox permissions showing SIDs
Can you check any file share in your enviornment, if possible on same server, is it showing only sids?
Make sure the exchange server is able to communicate with your GC properly. Was your decomissioned server also domain controller? if it was make sure all entries form DNS servers are removed.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

interesting, i added 2 new groups to the send as permissions and i waited a few min and when i went back one is still showing the name and the other is showing the SID.  

Our old exchange server was (and still is running as a DC).  decommissioning the domain controller is next on my list.  All the domain controller roles that were assigned to dc1 such as being a global catalog have been moved to another DC.

One thing i noted it's not using a 2003 logon server for AD, previously it was using a 2008 DC.

I did use your idea and create a folder with some permissions and i will check back to see if they are still there.

check "MSExchange ADAccess" logs in event viewer make sure it showing all domain controllers. The sid issue indicates connectivity issues with domain controllers.

Did you run exchange best practice analyzer?

ControlledChaosAuthor Commented:
Only errors that show up are not all that important.  For instance sites that don't have domain controllers.

I am not sure where to find the "MSExchange ADAccess" I have a MSExchange Management log group but only logs in there are MSExchange CmdletLogs

I threw in the towel and opened up a support case with Microsoft.  I don't have the same sid issues for file folders and i rebooted the server and it connected to our primary domain controller with is the one it was originally connected to.  I created new public folders, user accounts and tried to get the email thing working. I disabled all the settings on the current ones and re enabled them.

I also don't see any interesting events on either the dc or the exchange server and there are no records of the email existing when i perform searches on them.

I had a orphaned object in active directory that needed to be removed through ADSI edit.  It was a objected called SERVER with no properties in it.  We just deleted it and it worked. I was on the phone with Microsoft for 7 hours.

Thanks for the advice achaldave.  While it wasn't able to help me out on this issue it did give me a couple of ideas that i hadn't tried.
