Exchange 2010 Public Folders Replacment

Hello, everyone.

After years of upgrades, migrations and transitions, our company has made step-by-step moves from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2010.  Though we are in great shape with all of the goodies that Exchange 2010 provides, we still have in place the legacy that is Public Folders.  All-in-all they're pretty small - they host a few shared Calendars and Contacts - but I am unsure as to what to do with them.

So with that said, I'm looking for recommendations and/or advice as to what I should move these Calendars and Contacts to.  Some of them are public spaces (conference room, classroom, etc.), while others are shared Calendars/Contacts for groups (HR, Marketing, etc.).

Any words of wisdom?

Thanks,

Ryan

Either leave them or move them into resource /functional mailboxes OR have a look at Sharepoint...

Sharepoint is the best alternative.

Thanks, MegaNuk3.

Sorry, thims, for not allotting you points, but since MegaNuk3 had Sharepoint in his answer and beat you to the punch, I threw them his way.

Thanks again!
