have: ex 2007 sp1
created a public folder in the exch management console/tools/ public folders... mail enabled the created public folder and verified its mailaddress through properties.
When I mail to the publicfolder I don't see the mail in the public folder (outlook/ public folders / ...)
I mailed from internal (used the address bok "public folders")
when i add a forward of the mail (forward + copy in public folder) I get the forwarded mail, but again don't see anything in the public folder.
no filter assigned.
what could this be?

    What permissions do you have on the public folder?
    If you are emailing the folder internally then you need to have at least contributor permissions granted to either your user account or a mail enabled security group which you are a member of. Internal email is NOT anonymous.

    1: mailflow settings ok = messages accepted from everyone.
    2: strange, if I create a public folder in "Exchange pf management console (2007)" I can mail enable it but
    cannot set permissions in outlook/public folders. But when I create a pf in outlook/publicfolders I can change permissions but in "Exchange pf management console (2007)" I cannot set it as mail enabled pf.

    MORE: I received an error when I sent to the pf. (internally, same exchange server):

    #550 4.4.7 QUEUE.Expired; message expired in unreachable destination queue. Reason: There is currently no route to the mailbox database ##

    In the article there is a solution for exch2003-exch2007. Here we have only one 2007 server..... plus after the check I saw the xml has the necessary entries.....

    But I see that the e-mailadres of the public folder is address@domain.internal and my address is If I can change the address of the public folder to it could be solved, I think. Or I could check/create  the/a connector for the domain.intern.

    hmm didn't work.

    If you want to have a different email address on the public folder then you can just add that address using the Public Folder Management Console. The email addresses are on the properties of the folder.
