Additional mailbox not updating

The solution was simple – revert to computer problem solving 101 and reboot the PC.After the reboot all was well and synchronization worked as expected.

My next issue occurred when I attempted to delete a read-only document in a document library.Exchange is quite happy to have as many items with the same name as you want in a folder.Share Point isn’t and if you attempt to add a document to a library with a name of one that already exists, Share Point prompts you whether you want to replace the existing item.# Update: March 11, 2014: I've found that synchronization occurs more reliably after installin Outlook 2013 SP1.Of course, the updates to Exchange and Share Point on the server platform (in Office 365 or on-prem) might have helped too!However, when an item is added through Outlook, Exchange attempts to publish it to Share Point through the background synchronization process and the attempt will be rejected.

This might come as a surprise to the end user, so Exchange sends them a note (with the offending document attached) to let them know that a problem has arisen.

So Share Point rejects the delete and Exchange resynchronizes the item to make it reappear in the folder.

All perfectly logical in a Share Point kind of way…

In addition, the problem is noted in the Sync Issues folder of the site mailbox.

Here’s the text of a typical note: Failed to upload the document How Active Sync - Upload failed to Share Point folder location at " Documents/Books/Windows IT Pro Magazine".

The best laid plans of mice and men conspire to cause problems, so it’s unsurprising that site mailboxes have their little peculiarities, at least when viewed from the perspective of a long-time Exchange user.
