Lync 2010 client continuously accesses Exchange Web Services

SYMPTOMS
A Microsoft Lync 2010 client sends many CreateFolder calls to Microsoft Exchange Web Services (EWS) when EWS returns ErrorFolderExists errors. Therefore, the Lync 2010 client consumes excessive bandwidth.
CAUSE
This issue occurs after the Lync 2010 client sends a FindFolder request to EWS to find a Search Folder, such as the Missed Conversations folder. However, in the response from EWS, the GUID property values of the Search Folders do not match the GUID property values that the Lync 2010 client expects. Therefore, the Lync 2010 client continuously sends requests to create and find the folders.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, install the following cumulative update:
2624907 Description of the update package for Lync 2010: September 2011
WORKAROUND
To work around this issue, rename the Search Folder to re-create the folder in Outlook.
