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

wvrgroup asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
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;

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!
