  • Hi,

    To remove the warning from the Outlook clients, I recommend the following resolution:
    1. Recreate the Outlook profile
    2. Restart the the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service

    If you have any question, please feel free to let me know.

  • We had the same error show up after a MS Exchange Schema update. The msExchHomePublicMDB attribute for our mailbox databases was referencing deleted/invalid Public Folders.

    After clearing the value and waiting for AD replication, the issue went away.

    You can view/clear this in ADSI edit. You'll need to connect to the Configuration context. The DN of the mailbox databases is something like this:
    CN=Databases,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Administrative Groups,CN=domain,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=com
