Public folder tree not visible from ESM on new Exchange 2003 server

I installed a new Exchange 2003 server into my existing Exchange site.  We have 8 Exchange servers all together, one Exchange 5.5 (being phased out), and 7 Exchange 2003 servers all running SP2.  I installed a new server into this mixed mode site the other day.  But I found that I could not view the public folder tree in ESM.  I had this issue once before and managed to clear it up by giving it time to replicate and rebuilding the RUS.  This time none of that worked.  Here is what I have tried so far...

1. Rebuild RUS
2. Given days to allow full replication
3. Deleted pub.edb and pub.stm and re-created public folder store
4. Verified that the public folder store has a proxy address in adsiedit (rules out RUS right?)

At this point, I am out of ideas.  I can say that when I connect to a test mailbox on this new Exchange 2003 server, that the user in Outlook can also not see any public folders.  When I try using pfdavadmin and connect to this new exchange server, I also see no public folders there either.  I think its definately an issue with Exchange on this new box and not an issue with AD (I think).  

Anyone have any other ideas or things I can try?  Searching online has not given me much to go on.
