Create Public Folders through Outlook.
All Public Folders. That will allow you to create a public folder to hold Calendar entries.

However not sure what you mean by Public Folder for Blackberry. Blackberry devices cannot access public folders.

My apologies, In the blackberry set up instructions is states a need for public folders in order to communicate with exchange 2007.  My concern is because I do not have a public folders in the tool box it may not be turned on in Exchange 2007.  Is this something that needs to be activated in Exchange?  I also wish to create a public calendar for rooms with out creating a user in Active Director, log in as the room to create delegates and manage delegate security through an outlook client.

Thanks,
Tim

When you installed Exchange did you choose the option to enable support for older versions of the clients? If not then it probably did not create a public folder store. You need to look in the management console under Server Config, Mailbox, Database Management.

If you do not see a Public Folder store then create a new Storage Group, then create a new Public Folder store in that Storage Group.

Thank you, I found it.  What threw me off was the technet instructions that talked about a public folder options under the toolbox in the management console.

That is the Public Folder Management Console, which is used to manage public folders using GUI, rather than the shell!
