Default Error Message when publishing the form

Hello,

I have a problem publishing a form to the Organizational Forms Library. The error message I receive is: "Cannot publish the form because of a MAPI error. The operation failed." I have administrative rights on Exchange 2003 and I am using Outlook 2007 to publish. I created an Organizational Forms Folder within the system folder on Exchange, but whenever I try to publish a form to it, I cannot. Please help :(!

Thank you,

Arsi

Do you have owner rights on the folder? You need that to publish to the Org Forms library.

Yes. I do have owner rights to the folder. There are also 2 other folders under the EForms Registry called Organization(409). Are these system folders as well? Sorry, I don't know much about Exchange.

Also, I've created a Public Folder under the list of Public folders from withing Outlook and when I try to publish the form under that folder, I get a message saying, cannot create items of this type in this folder. My form is of type IPM.Note.

Thanks for the help.

That's not a system folder and I know you can delete it if there's nothing in there that you need. I believe it's related somehow to replication, but I'm not an Exchange admin, just a developer.

Make sure you create the library following the instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=244591. The only reason I know of for that error to occur is that you aren't really the folder owner or the folder was created incorrectly.

Is this a mail folder? If so try publishing a Post form there and see if that work. If not it's permissions.

Hi Ken,

I've created the folder with the steps shown in the site you pointed me to. When I right-click on the folder I created and go to properties, I get the message: The mail proxy for this folder can not be found. This may be due to replication delays. The mail enabled pages will not be shown. When I click OK, the properties box opens.

I tried to publish a Post form, but I was not able to I got the same MAPI message.

:(

Thanks for the help.

If your server does replication it can take a while before things are ready to use. Other than that it seems to be an Exchange admin problem and that's not something that I can really help much with, my Labrador Retriever handles most of my Exchange admin work but he's on an extended milkbone break.

I'd suggest following up on this problem in an Exchange administrative forum. You'd find a lot more knowledge about this there than you will get from me.

I also know that by default IPM.Post is what you get when email is delivered to a public folder but that can be changed by setting a registry setting on the server. Again that's an admin thing that I'm not really familiar with.

Ken,

Thank you for all your help. I spoke to the Network Admin, and was able to create a folder through Outlook and publish the form to that folder. When I clicked on the folder I did not see the form listed, but I guess I had to go to Tools-->Forms-->Choose form to open the form.

Thanks again!

By the way....you're funny :) :D
