I have setup replication between 2003 and 2010 PF by following this documenation:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124322%28EXCHG.65%29.aspx
Currently the 2003 is the production and 2010 is a test.  A 2010 test user is ABLE to see the PF in 2003 but I do not believe that I am actually replicating the PF because when I look directory of 2010 PF folder in about 700 Megs.  My PF on 2003 is about 12 GB.  So what is going on here.
Thanks

Hello,

You can use "Get-PublicFolderStatistics -server SERVER2003"  and "Get-PublicFolderStatistics -server SERVER2010" to compare the item counts on each server for example. You can then write a script to automaticaly compare items count for all folder of the 2 servers.

The size of the database is not important because the Exch 2003 database is probably not optimized (run defrag...).

You can read this too; it's a different solution but i've not tested this one :http://www.visualbasicscript.com/Verify-Public-Folder-Migration-between-Exchange-2000-and-Exchange-2007-m62022.aspx

Hi,

I tired this: Get-PublicFolderStatistics -server SERVER2010 and it DID come up with ItemCount, so I guess there is something there.  But when I tried the command for 2003 I got an error.  The error says (our server name is quimby)
Server quimby  is running Microsoft Exchange 2003 or earlier.
Please note I am running this on 2010 server.
