Exchange 2007 Public folders not visible in Outlook client

I have just installed a second Exchange 2007 server into a mixed 2003/2007 environment.

I created a test user with a mailbox on the new E2k7 server.

Public folder replication has been configured and appears to be working properly - store is mounted and database file size matches all other replicas.  

When I log into the test users mailbox with the Outlook client I can see the public folder node in the folder list, but there are no subfolders (other than "newsgroups"). If I log into the mailbox using OWA I can see and access all of the organizations public folder.  

Public folder access via Outlook on the first E2K7 server works fine.

What could possibly be going wrong here?

Double check that the Default Public Folder Database setting for the Information Store of the new server is pointing to the correct public store.

In the Public Folder Mgmt Console the correct folder schema appears under "Default Public Folders". In the Exchange Mgmt Console the correct Public Folder store is mounted.

The issue was, as Delphineous suggested, due to an incorrect "default public folder" setting - just needed to locate the correct field in EMC.

EMC-> Server Configuration-> Mailbox-> <server name>-> Database Management tab-> First Storage Group -> Mailbox Database ->properties -> Client Settings tab -> Default public folder database
