Is there an easier way to get to public folders?

When in outlook on an SBS network, if you want to get to the public folders, you have to click on the folder list button at the bottom left, then click on + next to public folders, then click on all public folders, then I see the specific public folders. Is there a shorter way to get there? I can make a folder a favorite, but still have several clicks to get there.

    If you use Outlook 2003, you can make the public folder a favorite folder (shows in the Mail view) after making the public folder a favorite public folder (right-click the "favorite public folder" and make it a favorite folder.

    With Outlook 2003, Favorites is about as close as you will get.

    Previous versions of Outlook used to have an icon bar where you could place links to public folders, but that isn't in Outlook 2003.
