Outlook Mobile Access and Acces to Public Folders

Just a Query - is there any way of accessing Public Folders via Outlook Mobile Access.  I have noticed that when I login it gives me only access to the users personal mailbox and not the Public Folders.  Does anyone know if Microsoft plan updating with a SP for exchange?
I know one can use 3rd party software which has much better capabilites then Micorosft's OMA - such as example is http://www.leederbyshire.com/ 
however I prefare not to put 3rd paty software onto my Exchange Server.
Any info would be appreciated.

As far as Microsoft are concerned, public folders are going. I would doubt whether there is any plans for any improvements to the public folder access for mobile devices.
Your only choice is third party tools. Lee's stuff is pretty good, you shouldn't have any concerns about it causing problems for you.

Microsoft want everyone to use Sharepoint. That is the technology that they push now. If you use Outlook 2003 then you will have already seen this the first time you tried to attach a document.
