I created a new General Purpose Public Folder - but it doesn't show up in my client

I have the store mounted and created a folder under it.  I cannot see the folder in my Outlook 2003 client.

All I have are the defaults: Favorite, All Public Folders, Internet Newsgroups.  What have I done wrong?

Can you see the PF in ESM?

Is your outlook running in cached mode?

Yes, I see the PF in ESM.  It was running in cached mode, I turned it off but still cannot see it.  If I make a new folder under the public folder store that was created when Exchange was installed I can see it in my client.  I just cannot see my new gp pf store.

what do you mean by "General Purpose Public Folder"?

i guess it is a simple folder that you create by selecting Right click and new public folder..

Right click folders with ESM -> New Public Folder Tree, named it TestTree mounted an associated public folder store I created in Group 1.

okay.. so this new public folder was created in a new tree and that new tree is connected to a new public folder store..

is that correct?

if yes.. then check the properties of your mailbox store in ESM.. that points to your default public folder store and it should be your old store and not the new one..

a general purpose pf will not show up in Outlook. Outlook with Exchange functions (typically) as a MAPI client and there can be only one MAPI PF hierarchy in any 2000/2003 org. So, only a MAPI PF will show up in Outlook.

read the following for a better understanding of PF:

Ahh ok.  Thanks.  Can you give a brief rundown of why to use one or the other?

kristinawCommented:
well, you only get one MAPI PF hierarchy per org.

As a rule, create all public folders through Outlook. It is not only easier for you, but it is the only way that you can choose the format of the folder (mail, contacts, calendar, tasks or notes). You can then set the permissions as required for your users.

I only use ESM for public folder work when I need to break in to one where a user has thoughtlessly locked me out of the folder. :-D
