Exchange 2010 public folder content not visible in Outlook 2010
Posted on 2014-03-14
Exchange 2010 SP3, Exchange 2003 mailbox server in environment with no user mailboxes.
Public folders on Exchange 2010 servers only
4 users use a set of public folders to maintain conference room scheduling. All 4 have identical permissions on all conference room calendars, they are all "editors". 2 users are new, 2 have been here for years.
The 2 experienced users can see all items in the calendars, almost immediately after they are made. This is only true for items created by people other than the 2 new hires.
The 2 new hires can only see their own items. They cannot see others appointments, and other people cannot see their entries.
Using OWA, the new hires can see appointments made by all other (non-new) users. However, nobody can see the appointments the 2 new users make.
1. Adjusting the new user rights, no effect. I elevated their rights, and also set them back to "editor".
2. Took user off cached mode. No effect.
3. Made a meeting on the calendar using my credentials. I am an "owner" of the public folder. Existing users can see it, 2 new users cannot.
Any suggestions? I cannot convert it to a room mailbox currently.
