SYMPTOMS

When you try to save an appointment to a calendar that is in a public folder in Outlook Web Access (OWA), you receive an "Internal Server Error" error message. You receive this error message even though your appointment is saved.

This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • You do not have read permission to the calendar where you are trying to save the appointment.
  • You are using the rich version of OWA in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 environment.

Hotfix information

A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft. However, this hotfix is intended to correct only the problem that is described in this article. Apply this hotfix only to systems that are experiencing this specific problem. This hotfix might receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, we recommend that you wait for the next software update that contains this hotfix.

If the hotfix is available for download, there is a "Hotfix download available" section at the top of this Knowledge Base article. If this section does not appear, contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support to obtain the hotfix.

Note If additional issues occur or if any troubleshooting is required, you might have to create a separate service request. The usual support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for this specific hotfix. For a complete list of Microsoft Customer Service and Support telephone numbers or to create a separate service request, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support
Note The "Hotfix download available" form displays the languages for which the hotfix is available. If you do not see your language, it is because a hotfix is not available for that language.

Restart requirement

You do not have to restart your computer after you apply this hotfix. However, the Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Admin Service and all dependent services will be restarted. Additionally, the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service is restored.

Note The hotfix installer may detect that the IIS application pool process, specifically the W3wp.exe process, is using files that the installer has to update. If this behavior occurs, you can click the Continue option because the W3wp.exe process will stop when the IIS Admin Service stops.

Hotfix replacement information

This hotfix does not replace any other hotfixes.
