Exchange 2007 Public Folders: The mailbox recipient does not have a mailbox database

I followed solution 1 from this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727370(EXCHG.80).aspx to recreate the Folder Hierarchies through ADSI, I got the public folders back in Outlook but now every email that is sent to a mail enabled public folder says "The mailbox recipient does not have a mailbox database", does anyone know how I can get mail flowing back into the public folders? It's starting to back up in the Exchange Queue viewer.

Thank You!!

Check the homeMDB attribute of the one of the Public Folders in ADSIedit and you might find that the homeMDB attribute is missing.

In that case copied the msExchOwningPFTree attribute of the Public Folder Store to the
homeMDB attribute of one of the mail-enabled Public Folders. And re-start the MSexchangeIS service.

Then try Sending an email to the mail enabled Public Folder and check if the mail gets delivered.

I had to go into the Public Folder Management Console and Disable all mail enabled folders and then Re-Enable them for mail to start coming through, Thanks endital1097!!

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I have this same issue, but disabling and re-enabling the folders doesnt fix the issue

Any other ideas?

Further, when I create new PF with a new email address, the mail gets delivered to it.
When I create new PF and assign it mail from one that the mail is having issues with, it stuill doesnt get delivered.
So the issue seems to be with the email routing ratehr than with the public store.

Any ideas?
