When you attempt to do deep traversal search on the MAPI public folder tree, it causes a run-time error.

SQL string to reproduce the problem:

Select * from scope ('deep traversal of "file://./backofficestorage/%userdnsdomain%/Public Folders/"')


Deep traversal is not supported on the "classic" MAPI public folder tree.


If you are designing an application that requires deep traversal, you need to create a new application public folder tree that MAPI clients can't see. Deep traversal is supported in any non-MAPI top-level hierarchy.
