Consider the following scenario:
- You create a user account in a child domain of a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 forest. The forest has Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Update Rollup 3 or a later update rollup installed.
- The user does not have a mailbox.
- You grant the user Full Access permission to a shared mailbox in a different domain.
- The user logs on to the shared mailbox by using Microsoft Outlook Web App Premium.
- The user tries to move or delete an item in the shared mailbox.
The Mailbox you are trying to access isn't currently available. Please try again in a few minutes.
This issue occurs because Outlook Web App Premium cannot create a security context if the user does not have a mailbox. When Outlook Web App Premium uses an Exchange Server 2010 Client Access server to redirect the request to another server, Outlook Web App Premium requires a mailbox to create a security context. However, because the user does not have a mailbox, a UserHasNoMailboxException exception is thrown.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
