‘exchange server administrator has blocked the version of outlook

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -



Our server has Microsoft Exchange 2010 installed with Microsoft Outlook 2007/2010. We have a new client that uses Microsoft Outlook 2003 and have loaded Microsoft Outlook 2003 on a few machines but are having a problem connecting them to our Microsoft Exchange 2010 server.

We encountered an issue with encryption but were able to solve it by selecting the outlook client and clicking the encryption checkbox. A new problem has now arisen that we are unable solve. Presently we are receiving an error message stating 'exchange server administrator has blocked the version of outlook'. 

For Outlook 2003 to successfully connect to the 2010 Exchange server, do we have to enable the public folders on the 2010 server?

Hello Annie,

To resolve the issue that you are getting, you will need to use the following procedure:

You will need to create an Exchange 2007 public folder store using the following steps:

  • On your computer, click Start, and then click All Programs, and then click Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.
  • After that  click Exchange Management Console.
  • And then expand Server Configuration, and then click Mailbox.
  • You will need to right-click the storage group that you want to modify, and then click New Public Folder Database.
  • After that you can go ahead and create the public folder database.

Hope this helps.
