On premise exchange 2013 public folder not visible(accessable) for 365 online user in Hybrid setup

Hi There,

I recently set up a hybrid between our on premise exchange 2013 and exchange online 365(ran hybrid set up, synced Dns and Azure. I have migrated few users to online 365 and everything is working except, the migrated 365 users don't see the on premise exchange 2013 public folder( just 3 public folder all are just calendars that not mail enabled)

I followed, the following article, both have the same instructions to enable access of on premise to 365



Based on the first article, I ran this cmt Get-OrganizationConfig | fl *public*  the output I have attached on screen shot attached

 I assume, this would make the on premise public folder available to the online 365 users, but still the users I migrated to 365 don't see any public folder. I will appreciate if anybody will have any idea if I'm missing anything.

None of the users I migrated to 365 can see the public folder. All users whose mail box resides on premise exchange 2013 are able to access the public folder

What kind of object remains for those users On-Prem? Needs to be a mail user with targetaddress pointing to ExO.

How are the users attempting to view the on premises public folders ... Outlook or OWA?

If OWA  ... "users whose mailboxes are in Exchange Online won’t be able to access on-premises public folders using Outlook Web App."  Refer to #5 of of the "What do you need to know before you begin?" section of this same article you referred to in your original request (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn986544(v=exchg.150).aspx#Anchor_0).

If Outlook for Mac, refer to the same as above.

If standard Outlook, should be able to without issue.  Regarding the screenshot you provided, I personally have never used the email address of the on premises public folder mailbox with the RemotePublicFolderMailboxes parameter.  Should work but not if you configured your local Exchange organization by mistake--as it may appear.  Did you run the command against the local Exchange organization or the Exchange Online organization as the document states?

Hi Vasil- 'What kind of object remains for those users On-Prem? Needs to be a mail user with targetaddress pointing to ExO. '
When UI check EAC of the on premise server I do see the user object indicating the mailbox is on 365. Yes, along with our domain email adress I have the email address of microsoft there as well @Domain.mail.onmicrosoft.com and  Domain.onmicrosoft.com. The route through is set to
Domain.onmicrosoft.com  it was defaulted to Domain.mail.onmicrosoft.com but only Domain.onmicrosoft.com works for us...

Hi Todd- We are checking it via Outlook 2016 client not OWA ( both don't have it)
I ran those commands by connecting to Online exchange via powershell.
I gave PFmailbox@domain.com as that's what the article 1 indicated, but I have tried both
Set-OrganizationConfig -PublicFoldersEnabled Remote -RemotePublicFolderMailboxes PFMailbox1
Set-OrganizationConfig -PublicFoldersEnabled Remote -RemotePublicFolderMailboxes PFMailbox1@domain.com

so I'm not sure.
