After you install a post-Exchange Server 5.5 Service Pack 3 information store fix that has a version later than version 5.5.2651.41 on a computer running Exchange Server 5.5 Service Pack 3, you cannot post a news article that has the Followup-To property defined to a newsgroup on the server. The following error message is displayed in Microsoft Outlook Express:
441 posting failed
Also, if you have a newsfeed configured on the server to accept replication from an external news server, all news articles that have the Followup-To property defined are rejected. If you enable the Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) log, the following error message is logged in the log file:
437 article rejected = do not try again
This issue can occur because the fix for another issue causes the type of the PR_INTERNET_FOLLOWUP_TO property to be processed incorrectly.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Exchange Server 5.5. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
