Delete/recreate Pub Folder database on Exchange?

Have all mailboxes/roles on single Exchange 2007 server and a holdover Ex 2003 server still up that was supposed to replicate pub folder data via replications, however this never happened correctly.  I need the 2003 server up else I get sync issues on Outlook clients.  All mail is being sent/recv by the 2007 server with no issues and I want to remove the 2003 server from the domain. (all other databases have been deleted)....im thinking a simple delete of the pub folder database on the 2007 server would work, however it won't let me because its not empty.   Maybe there is another alternative since we do have free/busy info we need to hold onto within user calenders.  Thoughts?

do you have data in pub folder?
If you dont have data you can delete the public folder.
If you have data, download trial version of exchange live import/export from http:\\www.clickzones.net and export your public folder to pst. Create a new public folder in 2007 and import it using the same software.

Once imported you can delete ur old pub folder manually and configure exchange2007 mailboxes to use the new pub folder

I would check why the replication is not working in Exchange 2007.
