Hide Public folders Exchange 2003

Trying to cleanup public folders before we migrate to 2007 as we have quite a few. I was wondering if there is a way to hide public folders from outlook users from server side.  The goal is to hide them and see which ones people are actually using.

i was thinking of just using pfdavadmin to remove permissions on the folders i want to hide.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

Yes that can work as well but every PF has a different set of users given permissions ..... try and hope that works or else can play with Modify items for some attribute

leadtheway: As you had correctly said if you want to play with Permissions than use PFDavAdmin
