Public Folders

Hey guys

This is a really strange problem.  The customer created a new user on a SBS 2011 server and when this person logs in to their Outlook 2010 the Public Folders they dont show up as normal Public Folders (like everyone else in the company) but as a copy of their own mailbox.  Really strange. The title of the folder is Public Folders but everything on down is a copy of their own mailbox.

Any suggestions?  :-)

I'd delete and recreate the Outlook profile.

Do things look normal in Outlook Web App?

I will go with Julian123 here. I guess you don't have any live meeting plugin.

Delete the profile on the computer or delete from server because I already deleted it from the PC that its having the issue (renamed the whole Outlook folder under the ....\local\microsoft folder)

I'd recreate the Outlook profile first. If that fails, uninstall and reinstall office.

I found a sync issue and the sync issue said it was unable to connect to Public Folders database.

Here is the email (edited for privacy of course)

Well, I logged on as administrator on the PC, went into the profiles section and removed the users profile (not just outlook but everything) and when I logged back on as her it worked like a charm :-)

No one else had the solution.  They all pointed to just removing the outlook profile but that didnt do any good.
