Error updating public folder with busy information
To track users’ availability for meetings, Exchange Server and its clients use free/busy data—a mechanism that often causes angst for Exchange administrators.Few administrators understand how clients publish free/busy data as users update their calendars, where Exchange stores the data, and what the data actually represents.Users' availability information is stored in Exchange in a hidden system public folder.This information is used by Outlook and OWA to tell other users if they are free or busy (hence, the term Free/Busy information).
