No Outlook 2003 clients, only Outlook 2007/2010 clients.

Just off the top of my head (no notes in front of me and wanting to go home...):

In Mailbox Database properties, under the client tab, is there still a reference to the E2K3 server that was hosting a replica of the Public Folder?

Did you create replicas for the Public Folders on the E2K10 server?

Did you ensure that replication was successful before retiring the E2K3 server?

Second Error messages references Free/Busy (non-IPM Public Folder) - did you create replicas for those (not just the Public Folders you created manually for your users)?

With Outlook open on a client machine, hold down the Ctrl key and right click on the Outlook icon in the task bar. Try the "Connection Status" and "Test Email Auto config" tests.

Looks like Outlook is trying to find the E2K10 server (judging from the error message) but cannot. So it SHOULD be the one that comes up in the tests. Let's check anyway.

Oh, do you just have one E2K10 server?

Maybe you could briefly outline how many servers we are dealing with here?

A retired E2K3 (no longer online?) and the current server: E2K10?

You might also try the ExBPA (best practices analyzer in EMC - Tools).

That should be a start.

You might look at this:

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-GB/exchangesvrmigration/thread/3fa0e88c-dcdd-43c5-a77d-36ab9a360a47

Looks like it might be a replication issue with the non IPM public folders (just glanced).

Might try restarting IS (info store service).

Some answers to the question posed.

In Mailbox Database properties, under the client tab, is there still a reference to the E2K3 server that was hosting a replica of the Public Folder? No

Did you create replicas for the Public Folders on the E2K10 server? Yes, but it disappeared then reported it was corrupt.

Did you ensure that replication was successful before retiring the E2K3 server? Yes, everything appeared ok but checking the logs, I found that there were errors with the Public Folder from the start.

Second Error messages references Free/Busy (non-IPM Public Folder) - did you create replicas for those (not just the Public Folders you created manually for your users)? I have not manually created a Public Folder structure until this is fixed.

With Outlook open on a client machine, hold down the Ctrl key and right click on the Outlook icon in the task bar. Try the "Connection Status" and "Test Email Auto config" tests.

Looks like Outlook is trying to find the E2K10 server (judging from the error message) but cannot. So it SHOULD be the one that comes up in the tests. Let's check anyway. Nope, this doesn’t appear to be the case. Outlook from client side is working correctly. There are no Outlook 2003 clients.

Oh, do you just have one E2K10 server? 4 servers (2 at each site)

Maybe you could briefly outline how many servers we are dealing with here?
HUBCA and Mailboxes, 4 total servers.

A retired E2K3 (no longer online?) and the current server: E2K10? Yes, the E2K3 is gone, there were 2 servers.

You might also try the ExBPA (best practices analyzer in EMC - Tools). Yes but provided me with no information related to this issue.

Ok, this just got very messy and appears to have nothing to do with the retirement of the old servers. The missing public folder was minor by comparison with the "now" issues. After patching and rebooting the server, we cannot access the mailstore database. If you try from the Outlook client, the message is "Cannot open your default folders. You do not have permission to log in.” OWA works but no inbound/outbound email is being processed. Only backing up on the HUBCA server. Opened a ticket with Microsoft. After my first 5 hour session, yes it's a permission issue but why, at this point they don't know.

Oh what fun!

That was the issue, the machine account but is was related to the SID. Somehow the SID changed and the password didn't work. Mail stopped flowing on one site. But the other site worked fine. Once the SID was changes again, it worked.

Minor error on the FB issue but this is now fixed. The machine name/password issue was bizarre!
