Microsoft Exchange Public Folders

Hello, I have a little hiccup in my microsoft exchange set up. I have everything set up wonderfully, BUT, my client forgot to tell me that there were agents not part of the Microsoft Exchange mailbox that use outsider email address that need access to their public folders.

Example : My client's business is Example Business Solutions
email addresses are johndoe@example.com

I have set up a public folder (called Conditions) that everyone in EBS (Example Business Solutions) can access in their outlook and outlook web access by going to public folders and browsing to it. However, now I need the outsider clients that have different email address (johndane@exampler.com) and are not part of the domain/exchange box to be able to access this public folder for communication purposes.

What would be the best solution for this? I was thinking somehow letting those outsider clients go through the OWA (www.examplebusiness.com/owa) site to check this public folder but i don't know if that's possible or how to go about doing it.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much

You can create users and mailboxes for those user into this domain and let them use it the way other users are using. This is a common practice i used for external vendor.

Ditto, I know of no way to let external users into any Exchange resource without them authenticating as a domain user...

Thanks for the reply, but I have figured out a way by just creating a public email address (public@example.com) that the outsiders can can log into and view the public folder.

Thanks again

Your 'solution' is pretty much the same thing both of us suggested unless you left out something...
