So, in case that this is your scenario, the only advice that I can offer is: Be patient and read the information 🙂 By default, Outlook client is configured with the option of cache mode.
When using the term “Exchange Mailbox”, we are using an “alias” for a Database that hosted on the Exchange server.
We can describe the OWA (Outlook Web Application) mail client as a “viewer” for the data that stored in the Exchange database, and the Outlook mail client as a “viewer” for the database (OST File) that stored on the user desktop (Hard drive). WAN environment: When using a local Exchange Server (on-premises), Outlook synchronizes data to and from the Exchange Mailbox, by using a local LAN infrastructure.
Moving either the primary or secondary public folders causes the permission structure to switch to using the default access control list for user access.
Those organizations that installed CU2 for Exchange 2013 and subsequently moved their primary public folders will have to "manually reassign permissions," according to Smith.
However, in practice, Microsoft's frequent updates for Exchange have tended to come with unfixed problems in recent years. The problem this time is associated with moving public folders, according to a blog post by Ross Smith IV, principal program manager for Exchange customer service at Microsoft.
When either a primary or secondary public folder gets moved after installing CU2 for Exchange 2013, then there's a possibility that "the permission structure" for users on those public folders will get lost. It's called the "Root Public Folder Mailbox." Secondary public folders are "childs" of the root folder.
We hired a new staff member yesterday and so I set her up on our Office 365 account, per usual. When I pulled up the calendar on my Outlook 2016 for Mac and highlighted Corporate Calendar, all it did was show "sync pending for this folder." It never would update.
I gave her access to the Public Folder we use for a shared Corporate Calendar. So, I cleared my cache and unsubscribed from the calendar.
At a high level the process involves: Of course the reality is that there are many caveats and ways for a public folder migration to go wrong.
Generally speaking you should always refer to the Tech Net article as it will document the latest requirements and limitations for a public folder migration.
Using a local copy of the Mailbox content should significantly improve the Outlook performance (response time) because access to the “data” (Mail items) created by using a local copy of the Mailbox that stored on the local drive.
