I have an issue where an individual is unable to see the link in OWA 2007 Premium of the Public Folders.  When she use an Outlook Client she can get to them with no issues.  Here is what I have on her account when I ran: get-CASMailbox -Identity "USERNAME" | fl *

Watch Question


So only This user is unable to see OWA 2007 public folders ?
All others work fine (from the same computer ?) ?


Correct, just this specific user is having issues.  And when I have this user log in with an Outlook Client she can get to Public Folders just fine.  So I have limited it down to an OWA permissions issue.  I just cant figure out what is needed to unlock it.  I have made sure to enable public folders.

Never had such issues.
To solve that fast , I would try  to recreate the mailbox.
If that's not working, that means it has something to do with the account, in that case perhaps a permission issue within the virtual directory (IIS).
Upgraded to Exchange 2010 fixed the issue.


Upgrading corrected the issue.
