Exchange 2007 Public Folders Forwarding Issue

We have Exchange 2007 with a mail enabled public folder forwarding to specific users. If I email the Public Folder and in the same email, the group of users specified in the Public Folders forwarding rule don't see Bob as a recipient and they would very much like to be able to. Can we use forwarding on a Public Folder without it removing non-members from the recipient list?

    I don't think so, because of the way the message is forwarded. When the message is forwarded, the original message is basically sent again, so the header information of the original message is discarded. The only way that you would see all of the recipients would be to not have a public folder as the primary reception, but a group, which forwarded to everyone and the public folder was a member of the group.

    Yeah that was plan B - setup a dynamic distribution group with the public folder as a member of the group. The folder wouldn't forward, just collect email and the users could see the full recipient list.

    Anyone else care to comment?
