Public folder store "logon" folder question...

Hello all, hopefully just a quick question someone can answer for me.  I'm removing an old 2003 Exchange server, and I've gone through all the processes and documentation I could find.  In testing to make sure I wasn't going to break anything, I began to dismount my stores one by one, and found that I still had some users in the "logon" folder within the public folder store.  Obviously, when I dismounted that store, all the users who log on to that exchange server lose the ability to see other users' 'free/busy data' within their calendars.  

There are no user mailboxes left on the server in any of the mailbox stores, and I have successfully moved all replicas of any public folders to another exchange server (I checked the 'instances' folder, and it is empty).  So my question is, when I uninstall exchange on this server, will those users automatically 'logon' to another public folder store to get the free/bush data of other users?

Thanks so much!

Yes, automatically it will point to the new public folder store. Check the mailbox store -> Properties -> General -> Default Public folder store. To which store it is pointing, when the user connect to public folder it will connect to that particular default public folder store first.

That was it exactly...  Not sure why, but a couple of the default public stores were pointed to the old PF...
