The answer is absolutely not.  You can access a public folder via IMAP but not POP.

Thanks for this answer,
Could you post to OL area the steps invlolved?
Is is just unhidding the PF and assigning an account to it?
Do I use the standard domain/useraccount/aliasname and pwd?

Are you looking for the steps involved to use IMAP to acess a public folder?

Yes
But before accessing using IMAP, I think that I have to set permissions and unhide from AB?
Then from a unix client, passing domain/username/alisname et pwd should be OK

You don't need to unhide.  You just need to tell the IMAP client to list all folders and subscribe the that public folder.  You are completely correct in your second sentence.
