That is correct, for exchange 2k it is not supported to move from a user folder to a public folder. But...you can mail enable the public folder through Exchange system manager and then forward the mail from the user to the public folder you need (just like any other email forward)

ok thanks....

Does someone know how to work around this problem????.....

I tried to access my web access mailbox (owa) using outlook 2002, it works fine but I don't see the public folders, but when I access it directly from IE I can see them...

Why is this???

I already gave you the only workaround I know of, Mail enable the public folder and forward mail to the folder, this will give you the ability to basically copy mail to the public folder.
As for the problem with IE vs Outlook, If it happens on everyone's outlook then it is most likely an exchange problem. If it only happens on your outlook, then it is an outlook problem.
Try changing the outlook profile delivery location. You may be moving all your mail to your computer into a PST file, if you goto Tools->Email Accounts
There is a pull down menu in the bottm left marked: New Mail Delivery Location, make sure this says: Mailbox - UserName, not Personal Folders (which is what it defaults to)
