"The Mailbox you are trying to access isn't currently available" error when you use OWA Premium to try to delete an item that is in a shared mailbox

Van toepassing: Exchange Server 2010 EnterpriseExchange Server 2010 Standard


Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a user account that does not have a mailbox in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment.
  • You configure the user account to have full access permissions for a shared mailbox.
  • The user logs on to the shared mailbox by using the Premium interface of Microsoft Outlook Web App (OWA Premium).
  • The user tries to delete an item that is in the shared mailbox.
In this scenario, the user receives the following error message:
The Mailbox you are trying to access isn't currently available. Please try again in a few minutes.


This issue occurs because OWA Premium requires the user to have a mailbox when OWA Premium tries to create the security context. If the user does not have a mailbox, a UserHasNoMailboxException exception is thrown.


To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:
