Exchange Public Folder issue
Posted on 2011-10-26
We just recently upgraded to Exchange 2010 from Exchange 2003. We have a program that worked fine on the 2003 platform that runs a query against a specific public folder and extracts the data to display on a plasma (TV) screen in our lobby.
The data are from several different meeting rooms we have in our building and the display shows the meeting rooms/meetings (from the calendar) based on the time of day.
I didn't write the program and the person that did no longer works for us.
The account that is used to log in to the public folder has permission on each of the calendars (meeting rooms) and I've granted it permission to log on locally to the server (Windows 2008 R2).
When testing the program, we continue to get "403-Access Denied" and sometimes "400-Bad Request".
I've been told that in 2010 you can't log directly into the public folders but in 2003, you could.
Does anyone know any way around this?
Sharepoint has been suggested but I'd need an idea of how to import the public folder calendar to Sharepoint to be able to display the meetings etc.
