Global Folder across all exchange 2007 accounts.

Hello, I need to know how to setup a Global Folder across all exchange 2007 accounts. We just installed a new Konica Fax machine and they set it up to email the faxs to a single exchange account to a folder called faxes. What I would like to do is have all exchange users see this folder so they can check it for there faxes! Im not that efficient using exchange 2007. Any help or direction would be appreciated. Its sound like a simple task&

You could create a public folder called Faxes and assign the email address for incoming faxes to that public folder.  That means whenever a fax arrives it will show up into that public folder.

1. Go to exchange server/Administrator Groups/ Your Server/ Folders/ Public folders.

2. Create a folder to hold the faxes

3. Click properties on the folder

4.  Go to email addresses

5.  either add this folders email address to the fax receive group or change this email address to the address the device is sending the faxes to.

That is it. Faxes will now be visible in this public folder.

Right click on the public folder from the exchange administrator and go to permissions.  Add the correct permissions.

You open the exchange administrator and right click on the public folder, you then choose properties.
In the permissions section you will see a place you can add a group that has permissions to the folder.
