After migrating from SBS 2003 to 2007, I am trying to clean up public folders on the new Exchange 2007 server.

I was able to delete all of them except one. It's called 'Internet Newsgroups'. I am using the Public Folder Management Console. When I click on it and select Remove, I get the following error:

--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
Action 'Remove' could not be performed on object 'Internet Newsgroups'.

Internet Newsgroups
Failed
Error:
Cannot delete the object '\Internet Newsgroups'. Please make sure that you specified the correct identity and that you have the correct permissions to delete it.

OK

I have the correct permissions to perform the action. How do I delete this folder?
