In Microsoft Exchange 2003 Server, you may find that a new folder that you created does not appear if you use Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA) or if you use Microsoft Outlook Express to access your mailbox. The folder appears only if you use Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 to access your mailbox and if Outlook 2003 is configured to use Exchange Cached Mode. However, although you can view the folder, you cannot open or view messages that are contained in that folder. For example, you may experience all the following symptoms:
If you use Outlook to view a message in the folder, you receive the following error message:
The selected item is a message header. The entire item may not be shown below.
If you try to open the message, you receive the following error message:
The item could not be opened
When you try to synchronize the folder in Outlook, you receive synchronization error messages that are similar to the following:
Time Synchronizer Version 11.0.5207Time Synchronizing Mailbox 'UserName'Time Synchronizing local changes in folder 'UserName'Time Error synchronizing folderTime [80004005-501-4B9-0]Time The client operation failed.Time Microsoft Exchange Server Information StoreTime For more information on this failure, click the URL below:Time http://www.microsoft.com/support/prodredirect/outlook2000_us.asp?err=80004005-501-4b9-0Time Done
This problem may occur if all the following conditions are true:
You create a new folder in Outlook when Outlook is configured to use Cached Exchange Mode.
You create a server-based rule to move all messages that meet certain criteria to the new folder that you created.
The folder is incorrectly synchronized in Exchange Server 2003.
