I have exchange server 2007   and oulook 2007 clients.

I cannot access the public folders tree from inside of outlook.    The tree is not there at all  in regular or folder view.   None of the users can see it.

Is there some hidden permissions for 2007 that hides or disables access to public folders?   Any ideas on what is missing.

Hi,

When Exchange 2007 was installed did you select the option about having pre-Outlook 2007 clients? If not then the public folder database may not have been created during the install. You can create the database now and then restart your Outlook client and you then should be able to view the public folders.

You can check if the PF database exists by running the "Get-PublicFolderDatabase | fl" command at the Exchange Shell.

Please note PF admin from the EMC GUI is pretty much non-existent in the RTM but SP1 provides greater support.
