if the data is sensitive then i would not contemplate in the cloud as you never know quite where you data is.

if they need to be mail enabled then its easy to keep them as public folders

so are they mail items, calendars, or just a place to keep documents

I am not keen on public folders but for the functionality you need to probably to keep them as they are

I am thinking of moving the public folders to a SharePoint Cloud (office 365)

It looks like I can use quest or any other 3rd party tool or I can do it manually,
is this correct ?

The other question I have is once I move my public folders to the cloud will the permissions   stay the same as well as the mail-enabled option and e-mail accounts  ?

this doc should answer some of your questions

in short you can migrate them and keep the permissions - if you use a migration tool then it can take them over for you

If you do it manually i.e. copy and paste then you would have to set the permissions up.

Its not clear from any reading i have done as to whether you can still have mail enabled capability. I think that its no as the offer exchange service on 365 which would provide this
