I have Exchange 2000 Standard edition, I can create no more than 4 storage groups in the entire organization, and in each storage group I can create up to 5 public folder stores.
in the entire exchange organization I can create only 1 mailbox store.

I don't what Microsoft mean by this:
<<<One mailbox store database and one public folder store database that can be accessed by using MAPI and Outlook Web Access>>>

It means that you can only create 1 mailbox store. The additional Public Folder stores can only be accessed programatically. Your Outlook client (MAPI) cannot access these. Neither can OWA.
