exchange public folder access going to different server in different site


I have 2 exchange servers in 2 AD sites. The relevant public folders are replicated to both servers in both sites.

When a user in site 2, who'd mailbox is on the server in site 2 tries to access a public folder replicated to site 2, MS Outlook is connecting to the server in site 1 for public folder access. Due to these sites being seperated by a WAN, access to the public folders is very slow.

How can I force them to access the public folders on the local server?

What is the default public folder store specified in the mailbox store properties on the exchange server in site 2?

I had it set via a policy applied to ALL my servers. Changed it back and it's all OK now.
