Inbound Public Folder messages are trapped in a retry queue. A delayed delivery notification and eventually an NDR stating that 'It is unable to deliver messages to the following recipients due to being unable to contact the destination mail server.'
If the first server in the msExchOwningPFTreeBL list is unavailable, external inbound Public Folder mail should route through the second entry in the list? This is not happening at present, any assistance would be gratefully accepted.

Yes, I have come across this before - Although Microsoft do not recommend mounting PF's on Front End servers? Are you aware what the steps are to replicate the PF hierarchy only ?
Thanks..

Yes - Replicate the PF Hierarchy only (as opposed to content) onto the Front end servers?

Quote - "it could be advantageous to configure gateways or bridgeheads with hierarchy-only public folders, or at least have hierarchy servers available within the inbound routing group"

if you have a PF store on the front-end server then by default the hierarchy is replicated.

I got this initial issue resolved by after running the MS Exchange Troubleshooting Tool which pointed me in th right direction. Many thanks for your assistance though.
