If you set up a moderated public folder, add it to the Favorites folder, make it available for offline use, post a message to it while you are offline, and then try to synchronize all folders, you may receive the following error message:

Error in Background Synchronizing. See detailed log in Detailed Items Folder

If you look at the log message in the Detailed Items folder, you see that synchronization failed while attempting to synchronize the moderated folder. The log message resembles the following :

15:22:41 Synchronizing Folder <moderated folder>

15:22:42 Error synchronizing message <test>

15:22:42         [80004005-501-0-324]

15:22:42         The client operation failed.

15:22:42         Microsoft Exchange Server Information Store

15:22:42 Error synchronizing folder

15:22:42         [80004005-501-0-324]

15:22:42         The client operation failed.

15:22:42         Microsoft Exchange Server Information Store


The <moderated folder> in the log is the name of the moderated folder to synchronize.
