Reference: SBS 2008 with SP2

As I understand that SP2 is setup to access public folders using /OWA link setup.

Can anyone specifically describe where I specify Public Forders as I can't find it anywhere?

Seems to me this was 'broken' a while back and you may need one of the rollups since SP2, but you should be able to log into OWA and at the bottom left have options for mail/calendar/contacts/documents/public folders  You will need to be logged in as a domain admin to add folders.

Can find it......

How can I find roll ups that fixes it,  or better description on where to find public folder option.
Best bet for updates is to go to control panel | windows updates | bottom line of text on the right "check online for updates from Microsoft Update.  Make sure you have all SP, RollUps and security updates

I have attached an image with the location where public folders "should" appear
I checked the updates, and it states there are no updates available for download. I have 2008 SP2. How can I update Exchange 2007 to latest version?My install update list is very large. I have not been able to show what version of Exchange 2007.
Exchange console Help shows just 2007. I noticed that rollup 4 for exchange SBS 2008 is available, and that 5 was due for release in August of 2011. It does show you have to apply all roll ups.

My OWA list doesn't look like your attachment.

I did confirm that Exchange Server 2007 SP2 was installed.

See attachment -- much different than what you showed.

To determine the Exchange build number, from the Exchange Management Shell (command line) run:
Get-ExchangeServer | fl name,edition,admindisplayversion

The following article matches build numbers to SP and rollup, and has links to the downloads:
After a lot of experiments I figured out the problem:

It works with IE and specifying to NOT using Outlook Web Access light!

Initially I was using Google Chrome browser who defaulted to OWA light and is not clickable to change.

The OWA display is completely different between light and not light.
