EV9 - No new items for public folder archiving?

Level 3
Partner Accredited

Hi there,

a customer have a problem that since a few weeks new items in public folder will not be archived. When I run the archiving task in report mode it shows me no items to archive. How can I troubleshoot this issue? When I start Outlook with EV System Mailbox I cant see the Public Folders (permissions were not changed so I dont think there are any folderpermissions necessary or?)

Kind regards

customer changed the permissions to owner für all public folders but nothing changed (still no items to archiv in reports).

Just so that you know it's nothing something odd with 10.0.3 :



And this is a new PF, with new items copied to it, and then the new PF task run against it with a 0 day policy:


Not sure whether this has been asked already ...

- What version of Exchange is this?

- Is there any replica PF's involved or is this a non-replicated public folder?

- If you create an Outlook profile for the Vault Service Account on the EV server, and open Outlook, can you browse to your PF target, and open items?

- What sort of permissions does the Vault Service Account have on the top level of the PF hierarchy?  For me, using Exchange 2003, I have to check this with Exchange System Manager on the EV server.  [And my Vault Service Account has full control]
