I have Exchange 2003 and whenever I try to view the Public Folders it freezes and I have to use Task Manager to shut it down. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

have the exchange administrator look at your exchange settings (server side). You may have some corruption or invalid information.

Is there a way to see who the owner of the Public Folder is? That way I can just delete it from there, because I created it, but I am not the owner, I only have author permissions now.

Thanks

You linked me back to the thread I started on their site :blink:

They are useless over there and no one has been able to help me anywhere. I am dying a slow death over here, and it is like Im the first one to ever see this problem.

Any who, thanks for the idea :whistling:

jaxis....have you tried taking ownership of the folder (never done this so i don't know if it's possible) by changing your role to owner? the admin account should always be able to take ownership on a public folder

When I log on as admin and go to the folder and right click to check the permissions, everything is grayed out, and it just says the admin is an author.

Its really strange, its like once it was created it is out there, and no one can take control of the folder :whistling:

At the chance of looking dumb, I found this, which you probably already knew:

When you open System Manager, navigate to Administrative Groups | your administrative group | Servers | your server | First Storage Group | Public Folder Store. Now, right click on the Public Folder Store container and select the Properties command from the resulting shortcut menu. When you do you will see the Public Folder Store Properties sheet. This properties sheet allows you to control the general behavior of the public information store. The main thing that I wanted to show you on this properties sheet is the Security tab. The Security tab sets up the permissions across the entire public folder store. This is where you can specify who should and should not be allowed to create or delete public folders. This is important because you don't want one of your users creating their own unauthorized public folders or deleting yours.

When I check the security tab it gives admin full control. But when I log on as admin and open outlook it still wont let me do anything to the folder.

Thanks for the idea.

Unfortunately no help. Alot of those links had more to do with the actual public folder store and removing one of those, but i only have one.

Thanks
