When one tries to expand the Public Folders view in an Outlook client that is mapped to a Exchange Public Folder setup, it errors out saying that the Exchange server is not available due to either network problems or maintenance.

The Exchange Public Folders are online and it does work through Outlook Web though.

Version of Exchange?
Does the database have a default public folder database assigned?

2010. Yes but it is split between servers for redundancy

Are the folders fully replicated? There is no redundancy with Public Folders, if you lose the public folder database then you have to reconfigure the databases.

If you have multiple public folder databases, does it happen for users with the other database?

only happens for one more user (not in cached mode) out of 200 mailboxes.

How would I check to see that they're fully replicated?

Compare the output of get-publicfolderstatistics.
If you move the user to another database which has the other public folder store as its public folder database, does the problem follow?

Seems to be off from both servers, by a lot of folders.
