Have you created the top level?

Once you create the top level, ensure that they have publishing editor rights and you should be set

I can't create any folders at all in Outlook.  Are you talking about Outlook or Exchange?

Sorry, I was talking about creating the top level folder in Exchange System Manager - I suppose I should have actually stated that :/

Where in ESM are you able to create Public Folders?  I thought you are only supposed to grant permissions in ESM and add folders in Outlook.

In ESM, Admin Group, Your Admin group, folder, public folders

Top level folders can only be created in ESM, usually I build them and whatever basic structure there is, then assign permissions and set the users loose.

I assume you mean in ESM, under Domain name (Exchange), goto Folders,Public Folders.  I don't see where you talking about Admin Group, your admin group above Public Folder level.

That is just a view setting (the option to display admin groups), as long as you end up in public folders, you are in the right spot.
