  • Unauthorized to View

    We are using Exchange 2003 standard for our e-mail server. I have set up two public folders where we store weekly memoes for our staff. Staff have no problems accessing these files and opening them with Word using Outlook 2002 and 2003. However, when users try to access these files using OWA, they get a message stating they are unauthorized to view. They can access the folder and view the file, they just can't open it. Any ideas on how we need to correct this or is there a better way?

    1. Do they have problem accessing this folder from Outlook too? if yes, check permissions issue.
    2. Basically this issue is related to "freedocs", but it is general configuration to all PF and not to a specific one.
    I don't know if it will help your problem, but try the next links:

      Thanks for the answer. You hit the nail on the head. I have decided it is easier if we just cut and paste the word doc in a post in the folder and all will work fine. Thanks for the heads up on the freedocs!
