difference between shared mailbox and public folder

difference between public folder and shared mailbox
Watch Question


A public folder is exactly what it sounds like - a folder that is available to multiple users. A mailbox is a storage area made up of a number of folders that is normally designed for use by a single user. It contains a number of features such as Inbox, Calendar, Out of office messages, etc.

What exactly are you looking for?
-Public folders can be replicated to all exchange server in the organization
-Public folders can not be housed in the same database as Mailboxes
-Items that are deleted from Public Folders do NOT go through the recycle bin ("deleted items" folder)

Although I don't think this question deserves a place in the database I don't see why they should recieve their points back. Lack of response from the question asker. I responded within 30 minutes and no response.
