You have a public folder already and now you want it to have an e-mail address, am I correct?

In that case..

Start the "Exchange System Manager" program
Under Action->Properties, check the box "display administrative groups"
Administrative groups should now be visible in the tree.
Go to Administrative groups->First Adminsitrative group->Folders->Public Folders
Right click on the Public folder you want to assign e-mail address to and choose "properties"
Go to the tab "E-mail addresses"
