In Outlook 2010 press "Ctrl + 6" in order to open the folders list

Once the folders list view is activated, in the left pane... go to the botton and expand "Public Folders". There you are suppose to find all the public folder information that you have in your public folder Database (We are considering that these folders have permissions in order that you access them)

the problem is that the Public Folders are not included in the list of folders that appear in the left pane.

I found a check box somewhere in Outlook which said something like include server favorites

but i haven't been able to find the check box again to verify what it said..but it did include the public folders after I checked it.
