I recently Installed SBS 2011 and I want to import public folders from the old SBS 2003 server. I have already exported the public folders to a .pst file. Can anyone tell me how I can import the .pst in to the exchange pulic folders? I have created a new public folder under the default using the management console and that gave me some options but none of them were an import option. Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe not the quickest way of doing but it will certainly work : go on a user computer, open Outlook, import the pst and then transfer everything to the public folders :)

I know you cannot export public folders in pst with exchange 2010 shell so I'm guessing that importing either.

Yeah. I had that option in my mind but I was hoping for something less painful.
