I have a strange problem, I have migrated from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010 all when well except for Public Folders. On exchange 2010 I see the Exchange Folders but not the messages.
SMTP rouring is working between 2003 and exchange 2010. would this be a replication or permissions problem ?

I would first think replication issue.

Did you issue any command to replicate the folders?

There is a powershell command MoveAllReplicas.

Do you have any SMTP routing connectors on the 2003 box?  Or is it only the  default SMTP Virtual connector?  I had some problem with the SMTP connector (not the default) causing a replication problem.

It's likely that your mailbox databases in Exchange 2010 are pointing to the new public folder database (also on Ex 2010). As long as both servers are on, you should still be able to access the data as Exchange 2010 will do a referral to the 2003 public folder store. If you have already shut down your 2003 or removed it you won't be able to access the content.

What's the status of your 2003 server?

You can use the powershell command.  Another way is to create Replicas on the Exchange 2010 server.

After all the folders have moved you can remove the replica from the 2003 server.

The powershell command works great though.
