I currently support a MOSS 2007 farm (iis6). We just notice a strange issue on our mysites web application. if a user trys to access another user's mysites page and does not have access, they will see the following error message: Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040E05 instead of sharepoint's standed "access denied page."

Any clue why this is happening. Thanks in advance!

We just had this problem and found that the My Site in question was over it's quota. We increased the quota and the problem went away.
