Hi ucguy,

I am not entirely sure what your question is.

This is how you mail enable or disable a Public Folder in Exchange 2013.

Public Folders are much better in Exchange 2013 because they are now part of the mailbox database and replicate with the DAG (Windows Failover Clustering). No more pesky Public Folder replication!

Not sure on concerns. Mail Enabling Public Folders has been around forever. Works fine.

Outlook 2007 and newer. But I would always make sure your Outlook version is fully patched.

These FAQs on Public Folders are pretty good.

For OWA 2013, its a little different. Unlike previous version of OWA, users now have to add the Public Folders individually. Its a bit of a pain in my humble opinion. I preferred when users saw the whole hierarchy. Probably be a bit of a learning curve. The full Outlook client functions the same way with public folders. Users will have no idea if they are using Legacy Public Folders or the new Public Folders with the Outlook client.

Not many concerns with disk space. It is technically just a shared mailbox. You may find this article on Public Folder Limits useful. The maximum size of a Public Folder mailbox is 100GB. You can add additional Public Folder Mailboxes to serve the hierarchy if needed. And it is recommended your Public Folder Mailbox is served from a DAG.

Yes. You can move the mailbox just like you would any other.
