outlook very very slow

Dear Experts,

i did transition from exchange 2000 to exchange 2007 sp1, here is my setup:

2 CAS/HUB server with NLB
2 MB Servers with CCR

i move my all mailboxes and all mailflow is done from exchange 2007. i move public folder replicas from public folder instances container. as i am using exchange 2000 so there is no option like move all replicas so i use this command in exchange 2k7 shell:
MoveAllReplicas.ps1 –Server exchange2k –NewServer E2K7

it runs quietly without any error but still i can see all instances in pubic folder instances container in exchange 2000.

now my problem is if i shutdown my exchange 2000, my outlook users get very very slow. outlook opens fine but send/recieve takes approx 20 mins. if i start exchange 2000 again every thing gets normal.

how should i resolve this issue.

You can't have your public folder database on a CCR cluster. If you are using CCR, you will need to bring up another stand-alone mailbox server to house your public folders.

thanks jjmck for prompt response,

ok i will not use public folders, but i have outlook 2003 clients as well, so will outlook 2003 will also go fine without public folders in exchange 2007.
Can you guide me that if i shut down my exchange 2000 what could be the issue of the slowness of outlook users where as OWA is working fine.

You must have public folders if you have Outlook 2003 clients. You have two options - you can leave your Exchange 2000 server running to house the public folders until you get all your clients moved to Outlook 2007 or you can build out a dedicated public fodler server on Exchange 2007.
