Due to some recent screw ups and recoveries, my public folders are now on a different exchange server than they need to be...my users can't access the public folders now.

How do I move my public folders from exchange server A back to exchange server B?

I would replicate all data to the main mail server slowly, then remove the problematic server from the replication list.

Right click on each public folder in Exchange manager, go to properties, select the replication tab.  Add the correct Exchange server, let the server replicate the data.  After time has passed for replication to happen, remove the old server from the replication list.  Now the public folder will only be located on the new server you selected.  Make sure you give Exchange plenty of time to move the data to the new server.  This won't happen instantly, depending on how large your public folders are, it could take some time!
