I have a 2003 and 2010 Exchange servers running in our environment.  How can I replicate 2003 public folder in 2010.  I do see the listing of folders in 2010 but I am unable to access it the folders, I get an error message that says:
"The public folder you're trying to access couldn't be found.  For more information, contact your helpdesk."

Thanks

You can do this from ESM on your 2003 box... http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124322%28EXCHG.65%29.aspx

Hi Johan,

I did that but still have issues. It is strange because if click on the All Public Folder folder with Outlook I get an error message that says:
Cannot expand the folder.  The attempt to log on the Microsoft Exchange has failed".

If I click on "All Public Folder" Properties and choose Folder Size, I am able to see the folder size of each folder that resides on 2003 server.

Hi, In that case you know you have a PF Store on your Exchange 2010 box and that you have replicated the folders ? on your Exchange 2010 Box open EMC, then drill down to Organization Config / Mailbox then under Database management select the DB where your mailbox is located and go to its properties. Select the Client Settings tab and click Browse against Default Public Folder Database and select the Public Folder Database on your Exchange 2010 box. I am wondering if you have removed the Public Store from 2003 or it is dismounted but your users are still being pointed to it.
