    This feature has been removed in Outlook 2010.

    "Send Link to This Folder

    In Office Outlook 2007 and in some earlier versions, this feature opens a new mail message that has an attached .xnk file that links to the public folder. Because of increased security in Office Outlook 2007, access is denied to Microsoft Exchange Server public folder shortcuts with an .xnk file name extension. This is by default. So, in Outlook 2010, the Send Link to This Folder on the Public Folder shortcutt menu is removed. Instead, consider using SharePoint Server for collaboration."
