Outlook 2000 shared folder

By tlowner ·
I am running Exchange 5.5 service pack 4. Outlook 2000 as the client. I have a folder in a mailbox in New York that I shared with serveral users in NY. They can access the folder fine. I attempt to share the folder with two users in LA and they can't expand the folder. I made them a owner of the folder and I also tried making them a user of the mailbox. The LA postoffice is running on a separate box. We only have one site.

I forced a synchronization with the PDC and saw the changes go across the wire.

How long did you wait before testing their ability to access the folder? PDC synchronization doesn't necessarily do it - Exchange sometimes takes a while, even with users in the same locality, to propagate permission changes throughout the site. I've had to wait as much as 30 minutes sometimes, even with only one Exchange server in a single site - go figure!! Hope this helps!

I waited 24 hours. I know NT stands for Not Today but darn it's got to be quicker then this.
