Can anyone explain me the public folders on Exchange 2007 ?
I know that they are only there for historic reasons and in case Office 2003 is still used.
I'm looking at them now as I'm migrating to new server so I read that I need to set-up replicas.
And here is another one in my never ending chain of confusions.
I have 2 public folder containers - Default and System.
When looking into Default, I can see lots of user created folders, and folder has replication set to itself. So when I'm looking at public folders at Exchange1, they are all set te be replicated to Exchange1.
Why is that ? Should I add onther replication destination to be my Exchange2 ?
Now, lets look at System public folder. Thats a really confusing one.
Looking through the subfolder properties, I cant understand what is going on in here.
EFORMS REGISTRY - not showing any items - even 0 items - just says Not available on this server. No replication set.
Events root - again, says Not available on this server, but replication is set ??
OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK - no items, no replication on top level but it's subfolders contain some items and replication is set for all of them.
Now I have few OWAScratchPad folders - in here - every possible combination - some items / no replication - Not available on this server / replication set. One random of these folders is email enabled.
and so on...
Can someone please help my to understand this mess? Is there any place explaining all these folders and their default settings ? Is there a way of maybe recreating that structure if its messed up ?
If anything is wrong in here, how will it affect users ? Is it only for pre-Outlook 2007 ?
