Group permission Publicfolder

Hello,

We would like to start working with Public Folders to get more order in mailboxes.
At this moment everyone is receiving some information about projects and we always need to search for the right emails in multiple mailboxes. With Public Folders we hope to resolve this as everyone is supposed to put their project mail communication in there.

I have an Exchange 2010 server and i made in Exchange 5 Distribution groups.
Those Distribution groups have a few users added that are supposed to have acces to these Public Folders.
On the Public folder i added this group as Owner.

When i check my outlook, i dont see a Public folder, if i add the single user instead of a group, than i do get to see Public Folders. After i added the permission on user level and i go into my outlook to check the permissions, than i do see all the groups i've added with Exchange but somehow its not working.

I have been searching on the internet for some solutions but i couldn't find the right one.

What have i found:
- Enable-DistributionGroup
- Mail-Enable or Mail-Disable a Security Group
- Add Permissions for Client Users to Access Public Folder Content

All 3 did not help me to get me shown the Public Folder in Outlook 2013.

You can't use distribution groups.
You need to use a mail enabled security group. Older versions of Exchange used to change the group in the background, but later versions do not.

Because the distribution groups are meant for mail distribution only but not for granting permissions. Convert all your distribution lists to Mail enabled universal security groups and the things shoudl work.

When adding user you are able to see because, it has an associated NT account, so can be used to grant permissions.
