We have two windows 2003 sp2 server both running Exchange server 2003 SP2. I have migrated all the mailboxes from the older server to the new server without a problem. I have also done a public folder migration and the folder hierachy has copied over to the new server. However, the data or the forms on 90% of the folder is missing on the new server. We do not use a smarthost. Users can be able to acces the folders on the new server, however the infomation they need is on the old server. As a temporary measure, I have pointed the default public folder to the old server. How can I resolve this issue. ( If i copy the pub1.edb file from the old server to the new, will this work?)

I went through the links above and they let me know that I had the correct settings. Thanks! This is what worked: I went to each individual folder, set the replication to Urgent and Always Run. 24 hours later all the folders and their contents had replicated. I have changed the replication to once a day until i decommision the old server.
