When you use the Active Directory Connector (ADC) to configure a Connection Agreement between Exchange 2000 Server and Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 organizations, the users on the Exchange 2000 server may not be able to view the free and busy data of the Exchange Server 5.5 users.


This problem can occur if the ADC creates custom recipients on the Exchange Server 5.5 computer with home-MTA and home-MDB attributes. This causes problems with free and busy information between organizations.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
