Mail enable public folder vs public folder exchange 2010

Guys greetings I have a question. If a user sends an email to an email enabled public folder does it behave as an mailbox EX: Mail is delivered to a hub transport server in that Active Directory site and then sent each mailbox server in that ad SITE. If a mailbox exists in another AD site it is forwarded to that site and then the Hub transport server and mailbox servers. Or does it work exactly like public folder working on a PF folder replication every 15 minutes or so, thanks any help appreicated.

The email is only delivered to one place, which is to one of the public folders.
It is then down to public folder replication to get that message to the other replicas of the public folder.

The initial delivery is just the same as mailbox delivery. It will then be delivered to the server and in to the public folder. The item will then be replicated.
What doesn't happen is the email is delivered to all replicas.

I'm confused by your answer. If I have 3 exchange servers with the roles Mailbox server role, hub transport server role and cas in the same AD site. So according to what you are saying all servers should receive the email but if I had replicas not in that AD site it would not receive that email.
