Exchange 2000 Public Folders

Hello, all. I have a situation that sporadically happens. There are several public folders that were created on Exchange 2000. Some have individual accounts specified for permissions and others have security groups assigned for permissions. Sporadically, one of these folders will lose its proxy addresses and disappear from the GAL. If you go into Exchange System Manager and look at the properties of that folder, you get the message: "The mail proxy for this folder can not be found. This may be due to replication delays. The mail enabled pages may not be shown." I then either have to delete and re-create the folder or right click on it and select 'Mail enable'. Can anyone tell me what would cause this to happen? How can I prevent it from happening in the future? Thanks a lot! Andrea

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi
What kind of network do you have? Is the exchange server a DC as well or do you have another server as the DC? Are you using active directory effieciently? Your problem may lie with the DC and not the exchange server.

Check the replication rate of the DC. Sometimes this is due to having many user objects in active directory that the replication of their services is delayed.
