Here's the text of the message:
Outlook said:
"Cannot expand the folder. The set of folders cannot be opened. Microsoft Exchange is currently busy. If this message is still displayed in 30 minutes, contact your Exchange Administrator."
That's what you get when coders create error messages. They tell the user 'what' happened (usually in techno-babble) and leave it to the poor sod of a user to figure out how to fix the problem.

This message should have been something like:

That folder is presently unavailable; please try again later.
Your Outlook administrator has been notified of the problem.


Note the second line of the message - it's not up to the user to complain about it. The app itself notifies the people responsible that the system has fallen down on the job.
Software Zen: delete this;
