No the iphone will not sync with a public folder.

No it doesnt.
To sync shared contacts, you need to create a mailbox called shared - and add shared contacts to that mailbox > then share it.

Hi sunnyc7,

Do you mean use some 3rd party app to copy the contents of all the public folders to the contacts folder in the "shared" mailbox?  Then sync both the user's mailbox and the "shared" mailbox to the Iphone?

Thanks.
even if you create a mailbox and share it that will not solve your issue. as active sync can only link to one mailbox at a time on an iphone or windows mobile phone.

I use Easy2sync for outlook to sync from a public folder to a private folder. It works great
