My company has a single Exchange 2007 Server and I am in the process of cleaning up many years of bad public folder habits. I am trying to organization our 30-ish public folders by department / function by creating departmental Public Folder Containers (not mail-enabled) and moving all of the related existing mail-enabled public folders inside each container.
The problem I am experiencing is that I can "click and drag" the public folders to the new containers in Outlook but it simply creates a copy of the public folder with a new email address with a number attached to the end of it.
I have been able to create a new mail enabled public folder within the new container, copy existing emails over, delete the old public folder, and then add the old email addresses to the new one but this is a major pain. Even after all that then I have to reset all the permission via the Exchange Management Shell which takes a long time.
Is there an easier way to do this then deleting and recreating the public folders?
