Are both servers in the same Exchange forest with the same email address ?
Is the concerned PF Mail enabled ?

They are both in the same Exchange forest. The PF was mail enabled but on the new server, even though it's mounted I get an error when trying to expand the folder.public folder management console error msgWhen I navigate to the path where PF database resides, it's there, so it seems that it replicated, but Exchange 2010 still doesn't like it.

I assume proper replication or permission issues

What happened was that they deleted the old public folder store before the replication was complete. The deletion got replicated as well. Microsoft went into ADSI edit and deleted the default public folder object which allowed the one that they tried to recreate to be displayed. Then they were able to recreate their public folder structure from cached copies and in some cases, brand new folders. A lot of time wasted for such a simple fix.
