Specify Public Folder Type in Exchange 2013
Posted on 2014-04-21
I've created a public folders mailbox on our new Exchange 2013 server and I can now create public folders and I can see them on network PCs with Outlook 2013. But when I create a public folder using the Exchange admin web page, how do I specify the folder type. They are by default mail and post item folders but I want to create some contact type folders and task type folders. I've checked various documentation on this and found nothing. If I select the "all public folders" folder in Outlook 2013 I can choose to add a new folder and make it a contact item folder but I'm always told that I don't have permission to create new folders under the "all public folders" folder even if I'm logged into the workstation as the domain administrator.
Thanks in advance for your help on this.
