How do I turn off syncing of public folders on iPhone using activesync with SBS 2008?

I have many iPhone 4s and 3s in use.  They all use activesync.  We have a 2 year old SBS 2008 server running Exchange.  Users are frustrated that the many and varied public folder based calendar, contact folders, etc. are showing up on their iPhones.  Its confusing since they are only identifed genericaly on the iPhone.  We really don't want then synching the public folders anyway.  How do we turn this off so they only get their personal folders syncing?

You need third party software in the first place to sync Public Folder with mobile devices. There is nothing that I know of in Exchange that can make that Sync happen. I would see if there is some other software either on the exchange server or the clients computer that is doing the syncing.
