If the logging setting on the MSExchangeIS\Public\Access Control directory is set to Max, the following warning may be logged in the event log:
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: MSExchangeIS Public Store
Event Category: Access Control
Event ID: 1030

USER failed an operation on folder /O=ORGANIZATION/OU=administrative group/CN=Public Folder/ on database "server name" because the user did not have the following access rights:
'Delete' 'Read Property' 'Write Property' 'Create Message' 'View Item' 'Create Subfolder' 'Write Security Descriptor' 'Write Owner' 'Read Security Descriptor' 'Contact'
The data section of this warning message contains the entry ID of the folder.
This is a false warning, and it is logged if a user reads postings from a public folder owned by someone else, even though the user can access the contents of the folder. This warning can be safely ignored.
