Hi,
Using Public Folder for the kind of use that you want is not recommended. it is not the intended use of PF.
I would create a PST file of mails (of user who left) and hand over to people, seperately who wanted it (with authorization obviously). Else would disable AD user acccount and inturn give users access to the user's mailbox (grant permissions using dsa.msc)
Hope this helps
Thanks

Hi, wassup m8

There is no option in outlook where you can do this, so you can move the mails to the public folder manually or like gupnit says, copy the personal pst file to a public network directory and add this pst to other ones outlook.

Or you need third party tools like:
CodeTwo

or check http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/sync-mail.asp

Good luck m8
