To address this issue, first make sure that your Exchange 2003 or 2007 server has the lastest Service Pack and/or Update Rollup installed. For Exchange Server 2007, Service Pack 2, Update Rollup 8 for Service Pack 1, or later should be installed. These introduced changes to how named properties are handled in Exchange 2007. For Exchange Server 2003, first try installing the following hotfix and enabling the corresponding registry value as described in the Knowledge Base article:
