    Do you stil have Ex 2003 server in the environment. ?
    How did you verify that they are accessing PF on Ex 2003  ?
    Where is the users mailbox at present in Ex 03 or 07 ?

    Which ever the server users mailbox is in.....user will use the public folder defined in their corresponding databases.

    As said by "Rammestein" Go to the properties of the mailbox database where users mailbox is and check whic Public folder is selected there.
