I am in the process of migrating SBS 2003 to a new system.  I am following the steps as outlined here:

I am at the point where I am migrating the Exchange data, specifically replicating the public folders.  In ESM, when I click on the public folders I get this error:

The HTTP service used by Public Folders is not available, possible causes are that Public stores are not  mounted and the Information Store service is not running.
ID no: c1030af3
Exchange System Manager

I am currently NOT using any public folders.  The next step talks about replicating system folders in the public folders.  If I'm not using public folders for anything, can I skip this step or should I try to fix it because there's something in the system folders that I need?  Thanks!!
