Can you see the folder in Outlook Web App ? what error messages/results do you see?

Also you posted links from Intermedia as well as Office 365, although it makes no difference does this mean you use a hosted Exchange. Who is the provider ?

Check you can open the PF Calendar first using OWA, it may be down to permissions on the folder and have nada to do with your Mac. Post the results back along with the provider so we can give you further advise.

Office 365 does not actually support Mac accessing its public folders very good

I have never seen the limitation you suggest.
