Exchange 2007 Mail-enabled public folder delivery and general puclib folder alias issues

Exchange 2007 Enterprise SP3 - 1 mailbox server - 2 CAS servers

Sending email to mail-enabled public folders generates the following error message:



Generating server: CAS02.XXX.XXX

OutofOffice@xxx.com
#554 5.2.0 STOREDRV.Deliver.Exception:ObjectNotFoundException; Failed to process message due to a permanent exception with message The Active Directory user wasn't found. ObjectNotFoundException: The Active Directory user wasn't found. ##

Original message headers:

I then attempted to retrieve a list of mail-enabled public folders by using the following command:  
[PS] C:\Users\ultrabac\Desktop>Get-PublicFolder "\" -Recurse -ResultSize Unlimit
ed | Get-MailPublicFolder -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Format-List Name

I then received the following error for each public folder:

WARNING: Object xxx.xxx.internal/Microsoft Exchange System Objects/Benefits Fair
has been corrupted and it is in an inconsistent state. The following validation
 errors have occurred:
WARNING: "Benefits Fair" is not valid for Alias. Valid values are: Strings
formed with characters from a to z (uppercase or lowercase), digits from 0 to
9, !, #, $, %, &, ', *, +, -, /, =, ?, ^, _, `, {, |, } or ~. One or more
periods may be embedded in an alias, but each one of them should be preceded
and followed by at least one of the other characters. Unicode characters from
U+00A1 to U+00FF are also valid in an alias, but they will be mapped to a
best-fit US-ASCII string in the email address which is generated from such an
alias.

So I have two issues. Email bouncing from mail-enabled public folders and improper aliases (spaces?) on public folders.  How do I insert a "_" for all public folders?

Still researching the delivery error issues as well.

Thanks!

Is there a PF in the MESO folder and a Mail enabled object in Exchange ?

All public folders are located in the MESO folder.  The folders show up as mail enabled in the management console.

In EMC PF Console you would see all PF's so hope its Mail enabled and check permissions on the PF

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.

The folder is mail enabled and my user account has owner permissions.  I still can't send emails to this folder.

Can you see the PF in GAL or if you find the PF with Email address in AD do you see it ?

I can see the PF's in the GAL and their email shows up.  I found many resolutions such as the following:

http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2012/05/17/empty-cn-servers-container-causing-issues-with-public-folders-on-small-business-server-2011.aspx

We had the empty "server" CN in AD.  I removed it and now I'm getting the following error:

#554 5.2.0 STOREDRV.Deliver.Exception:ObjectNotFoundException.MapiExceptionNotFound; Failed to process message due to a permanent exception with message Could not open folder. 16.55847:9A000000, 17.43559:00000000A8000000000000000000000000000000, 255.23226:00000000, 255.27962:44000000, 255.17082:BFF9FFFF, 0.25697:00000000, 4.21921:BFF9FFFF, 255.27962:FA000000, 255.1494:0F010480, 255.26426:96000000, 4.18236:BFF9FFFF, 4.7974:BFF9FFFF, 255.1750:0F010480, 0.26849:4F000000, 255.21817:BFF9FFFF ##

This happens with a newly created test public folder as well.

It sure was.  After finding many others with the same issue, it looks as though this happens often.  

Some progress.  After deleting this entry, my new mail enabled folder is receiving emails but the originals are not.  Funny thing is now I'm not receiving NDR's so I have to track down these sent emails.
