Exchange 2003, Public Folder not posting emails as emails, despite hotfix

Hi there!

Recently I started experimenting using mail enabled public folders for certain addresses for our support staff, instead of sharing email boxes.  I've created the public folder, mail enabled it, and granted Owner permissions to our Staff distribution group, as well as configuring email rules for auto replys.  All this works, both internally and externally.  However, after following KB817809 (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=817809), and editing the registry as such;

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\<ServerName>\Public-<GUID>
Value name: Incoming defaults to IPM.Note
Value type: DWORD
Value data: 0 or 1 0 (zero) is default (0=false).

The items posted from external addresses still appear as posts and not emails, like they do from internally.  I'm sure this is a simple fix, and probably something I missed, but I was hoping someone had the solution, as I would rather not have to create another distribution list for this to happen.  Thanks!

Have you got multiple Exchange servers? Frontend/Backend for example?

Have you cycled the SMTP service since making the change?

I done the change loads of times and it has just worked, but I always do it as part of the build, so the server could be rebooted shortly afterwards.

What happens if you create a new folder?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Yup, have tried cycling SMTP service both from services mmc and within the System Manager.
When creating a new folder, the items still show up as posts after sending to them from an external address.
Not sure when I will have time to reboot the entire server though, if that is what you are suggesting, as it is fairly heavily used.

I don't the entire server has to be rebooted, it is the store that has to be cycled round.

I will try that tonight Sembee, after all the employees have gone home and the mail has died down.
