Cannot crawl Exchange 2007 SP2 Public Folder

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I am trying to crawl Exchange Public Folders within the free version of Sharepoint 2010 (Search Server). I have followed the instructions within the tech document http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee806927.aspx and teh account which is being used is a domain administrator with a Mailbox and full access to the Public Folders. When ever a undertake a crawl it runs for a minute and then produces the following error: Error while crawling LOB contents. ( In order to access a public folder, the effective caller must have a mailbox. ) Is there anyway I can further diagnose this issue as I have tried different domain accounts into the crawl rule but with no effect. Many thanks in advance.

Error when crawling Exchange 2003 public folder


Hi all,

When crawling Exchange 2003 public folder, I get the following message in the crawl logs:

url : https://myserver/public/xxx
A component required for crawling this type of content is not registered with this application server. View the event logs for more information.

The configuration of our production environment is:

  • SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Version with december 2010 cumulative update
  • 2 front end + 2 app server

I tried to distribute the crawl component to different servers of the farm : same problem.

We have an integration server (a all in one configuration) and we success in crawling the public folder. The configuration of the content source and the crawl rules are exactly the same with production.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Cannot crawl sharepoint site and mysite after database attach upgrade form sharepoint 2007 to 2010.

After database attach upgrade site and mysite from sharepoint 2007 to 2010 , I have full crawl and get "The crawler could not communicate with the server. Check that the server is available and that the firewall access is configured correctly. If the repository was temporarily unavailable, an incremental crawl will fix this error. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode ServiceUnavailable The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable. )" for mysite and get "Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled." for sharepoint site. The content access account for search is "db_owner" of both of site and mysite. How do I solved this problem ?

Transfer all FSMO role into another domain controllers 2. Install and configure similar role in the new VM (Exchange Server 2010 Std.) 3. Confused… Things to do after all mailbox migration: 1. Cutover the MX record into the new server name 2. Install updated UCC- SSL certificate into the exchange server 2007 Any kind of help and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Sharepoint 2010 & Exchange Public folders?

HI All, We are planning to move our Public folders to SharePoint 2010. But Before I would do that. I would like to know: 1. Can we receive emails with attachments in Sharepoint 2010? If yes, how the attachments are stored? Inside the email or separate? 2. How the mail enabled library and lists are different from Mail enabled public folders and Distribution list? 3. What is the format of the mail, .msg or .eml when saved in SharePoint? 4. How do we view content of the sharePoint public folder site inside outlook client? 5. What are features of Public Folders that I can't accomplish using SharePoint 2010?     Your help would be highly appreciated...

I have searched a lot but not getting any clue how to allow the business user to save a report

Exchange 2003 Inbox and Calendar webparts for MOSS 2007


I've created one Inbox and one Calendar wepbart as descibed here:


using  OWAInboxPart and OWACalendarPart (code below).

When deploying them and placing them on the same page, only one of them will show anything. It looks like the last added webpart works, while the other won't.
If any one of them is placed alone on a page, they work as expected.

Does anyone know how to make them work togheter on the same page?

Thank you for your time!

Best regards,
Hans Erik Storeide
