Hi dweb, tell us more. Do you really want a public folder, or a shared mailbox to process info requests, or the like?

Sorry, I forgot about this question.  I resolved it myself.

What I wanted was a shared mailbox.   I just created the e-mail account as I would for any user.  Then, I logged into the account, went into Outlook, right clicked on the mailbox folder, selected Properties, and selected the Permissions Tab.  i gave permission to the appropriate user.

Then I logged into the user's account, opened up Outlook, selected File from the Menu Bar, New Folder, then entered the mailbox name.

Hope this solution helps others out that may have the same question.  Thanks for your time.
