Not without a third party product.
Microsoft would like to see Public Folders die, they have a dislike for them, but they refuse to go away.

But public folders is so handy when you don't have SharePoint.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Microsoft want everyone on sharepoint. That has been the stated aim for quite some time. They tried very hard to kill off Public Folders with Exchange 2007 and if you don't select the right options when installing Exchange 2007 you don't get public folders.

The fact that you cannot do a mail enabled folder with sharepoint seems to have missed Microsoft completely. You ask them about it and you get an odd silence.

Well ... here may be a place to start looking for third parties tools.
