Exchange 2007 -> Public Folders -> Nofiying when there is a new message?

We have some mail enabled folders on our Exchange 2007 server.  Right now some of our users are missing important messages that are being delivered to those folders.

Is there a way to send a notification to a certain group of users saying there is a new message in one of those folders?  Some of the users are used to having the email being pop'd into their inbox and never missed any and now being it's on a public folder they are, which isn't going well....

Is there any alternatives out there with WSS 3.0?

I need to make this easy for the user and am looking for any alternatives or opinions.

setting the delivery reports would not suffice?

I normally have members in the group who also get a delivery of the message also, would this help them?

DEBUGGERAU -> How do you set these delivery reports up?
In your AD, Computers and Users, open the distribution group in question, select the exchange advanced tab and the delivery options lay here.
Select either to sent it to group owner, message originator or not too...

That, combined with delivering message to recipients inbox seems to satisfy my users.
They just delete the message knowing it will be in the group anyway, reading it if necessary.
