When I connect to all mailboxes using PFDAVADMIN to my exchange 2007 server I get a list of all the userse but when I expand any of the users I get the following error

Could not expand http://server.local/exadmin/admin/PGW.LOCAL/mbx/ The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.

Any chance it's due to connecting via plain HTTP? Unless that's a typo, it may be the issue. – Jeff McJunkin Dec 24 '10 at 6:21
in the connection options I'm not sure where you would specify https.... i just put the name of the server – cpgascho Dec 24 '10 at 12:35

I was getting the same problem a while ago, what I did was :

I logged on to my workstation (Windows7) on the same Subnet / Domain as Exchange.

On the connect window for PFDavAdmin, I specified DNS Names for Exchange Server and Global Catalog Server, Authenticate as Currently Logged on User

It worked straightaway for Public Folders and Mailboxes.

Try that if you haven't already - it will be good if your workstation and your exchange server are on the same domain (ofcourse) and using the same DNS server.

Hope that Helps

They are on the same Domain/DNS Server. How exactly did you Speicify the DNS Names? – cpgascho Dec 22 '10 at 17:26
servername.domainname.local or whatever it is in your environment. globalcatalogservername.domainname.local – rihatum Dec 22 '10 at 21:58
Yes the exchange & Global Cagalog servers are actually the same server and have been specified as follows SERVER.pgw.local – cpgascho Dec 30 '10 at 3:23
