Public Folder servers?
Posted on 2008-10-07
I've just joined an organisation that has multiple sites over Europe. They are using Exchange 2003 with Outlook 2003/2007.
I notice their main HQ site has a Public Folder server, as do most of the regional ones.
I must admit, I've never come across this before....
How does this usually work? Is there one central PF server (e.g. at HQ), and all the others are replicated to? Or do users connect to their nearest PF server, and there is continous replication going on between them.
If the latter, how does Outlook know which PF server is the nearest?
