Public Folder

Hi All,
Exchange 2000 sp3, on win2k sp3.
i have public folders set up and permissions set up accordingly. i have a
strange phenomenon occuring - some users (sporadic) cannot open items with
attachments these public folders through outlook(2000, 20002 all service
packs). However, when they log in through OWA - no problem - they can open
and view the same items in these public folders that they are not able to
through outlook. the error they get is the "Cannot open this item....you do
not have sufficient priveleges...."
Also, if they log into another computer, and configure outlook and connect
to the server - again, no problem....
Has anyone else seen this strange behavior?

Any help or Q article would be great -

Hello,

Is there a way to create a folder in the Public Folder tree in Exchange and
link it to an exisinting directory on the server that already contains
documents so that everyone can see this folder in their Outlook Public
Folders directory? The folder I want to share in Outlook for everyone is
the Archive folder of the Shared Fax Service.

No, at least not natively - Exchange folders don't link to file folders.
Can't you just use a public folder for your faxes? Maybe mail-enabled?

I guess I am a little confused. Isn't that what I am asking? I need all
the recieved faxes to go to a Public folder in exchange, however, until now
they have been going to a directory and I need to have the contents of the
existing directory also diplayed in the Public folder in addition to all
received faxes from now on.

No, that's different. You can view a public folder, but a public folder
can't show you the contents of a file folder on your server. If you can get
the data in the public folder instead of the file folder, you can see it in
Outlook.
