hi
i'm currently migrating a exchange 2000 to a exchange 2007 server.
in the exchange 2000 organisation, the contacts were stored in public folders. this public folders were added to the addressbook (via "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book").
how do you suggest i do that in exchange 2007? would you keep the public folder solution even though exchange 2007 is moving away from public folders?
i've tried storing the contacts in a mailbox and then share the contacts, but with this approch, i can't access the contatc through the searching the outlook adress book....

thanks!

Lets deal with the public folder thing first.
Exchange 2007 supports public folders fully. As does the next version (as it is based on Exchange 2007, remember Exchange goes major, minor in versions). Therefore sticking with the public folder solution you have now is fine. It will be available to you for the next seven or eight years easily.

Microsoft tried to de-emphasise public folders, but have failed, they are heavily used and Sharepoint is not a suitable replacement for many of the things that Public Folders does - even in the latest version.
