I have a SBS2008 Server running well, I have exchange 2007 with SP3 on the server, I have recently upgraded two workstations to Office 2013 (Outlook 2013) and those 2 computers now cannot open the public email folders in Outlook. They can see the folders but cannot open them? I have searched everywhere for a solution, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The error I receive is: Outlook cannot display this view, Unknown error. the weird thing is, the user can copy e-mails into the public folders, they just cannot view them! they get the error when clicking on any of the public folders listed.

Hi, thanks but I do not have exchange 2013 running, only office 2013, that is only if I have an exchange 2013 running which I do not, it's purely sbs2008 with exchange 2007, and the client has outlook 2013.

The only way i could get this issue resolved was to uninstalling Office 2013 and go back to 2010. Thanks for all the assistance.
