For Example:

When in Outlook, Public Folders are shown in the tree on the left hand side of Outlook.  If you right click on Public Folders, you have the option from the menu to "Close Public Folders".  I would like to close the public folders at the network level so that I don't have to visit each machine.  Is it possible to do this by group policy or registy setting?

So you want to effectively stop the users from using public folders? When I try the close option on the public folders in Outlook 2007, it says I need to change it under the the e-mail accounts. Which in more detail means I'd have to remove my Exchange mailbox to remove the public folders. Public folders are included with every Exchange mailbox. It's the best way to share information without placing it an individual's mailbox, which may be removed if the person leaves, and also to control access level to the information.

Good point connectex!  I understand now. What I am trying to do is this--I am replicating company wide contacts and calendars from the Public Folders to the contacts and calendars in their personal mailbox.  I am using a program called Code 2 for the two-way replication.  That is working perfectly!  If I change the public folder permissions by unchecking the "Folder Visible" then that completely stops the user and code 2 from replicating the public folders.  I was hoping that I can hide the folders and not revoke access permissions to the public folders.

Sounds like the Code 2 needs folder visable and read item access. I doubt you'd be able to really "hide" the folder from the users' due to the requirements of Code 2.
