Can not share outlook folder

I have Exchange Server 2003 running of Windows 2003 Server.  I have one user who has created a folder in outlook called "Jobs".  To share the folder they right click it and give specific users "Publishing Editor" permissions.  When those other users goto File -> Open -> Other users folder and type in the user name they CAN'T see the shared folder.  All they can open is Calendar, Contacts, Inbox, Journal, Notes, and Tasks.  The can't see the shared folder!  Certainly you don't have to share your entire folder structure?
My question is simple, how do you share a folder?

They will not be able to open a user-created shared folder that way.  That menu option only allows you to open the standard Exchange folders.  They will need to add the mailbox to their Outlook setup so that it appears on their folder list.  Then, they will be able to see and open the shared folder.

You can also move the folder to Public Folders.  There you can set the permissions for who you want to be able to see it and what you want them to be able to do in the folder.

I did make it work using this method.  I do have a single security question though.  Is it a good practice to set the "default" permission level for the Mailbox to "Folder Visible"... or would it be better to make that a specific permission for those who will be viewing the various shared folders?
