No Public Folders are shown automatically in Outlook

Hi.
My client don't see the Public Folders automatically in Outlook or OWA.

I ran a check via ems "get-Mailboxdatabase "Mailbox Database 0764947195" | Get-Mailbox | ft Name,PublicFolderDatabase" and the column where publicfolderdatase would be is empty.
I ran "get-mailbox |FT alias, defaultpublicfoldermailbox" and the correct public folder mailbox where shown, "Mailbox1".

How can i fix it?

My client uses Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 CU16 on Windows Server 2012 R2.
The mailboxes were migrated from SBS 2011 three months ago.

To navigate to a Public Folder in Outlook 2013:

  • Go to the “Folders” section of Outlook by clicking the ellipsis at the bottom of the window and choosing “Folders.”
  • Expand the “Public Folders – YourEmailAddress” folder in the left hand column.  
  • Either expand the "Favorites" folder if you have previously Favorited the folder or navigate through the hierarchy to your public folder.
  • Clicking on your Public Folder will allow you to access the contents.

Login to ECP, go to public folders and see if the user is having the permission on PF which he/she wants to see.

See attached screen shot.

Hi.
Ok, i found the solution for OWA. It works as you have it described but i need to rightclick on favourites to see the option "add public folder to favourites".
What do i need to have working in Outlook 2013? Just use the folder view?

You don't have PF database in 2013 you have mailbox, so why would you see database name with the first command ?

get-Mailboxdatabase "Mailbox Database 0764947195" | Get-Mailbox | ft Name,PublicFolderDatabase
