If you are going to apply permissions by groups to Public Folders, you
have to use mail enabled security groups.  During the upgrade, Exchange
2003 converts all distribution groups that are used for permissions to
mail enabled security groups.

Converting them back will solve the problem.

When we migrated from 5.5 to 2003 a few months ago I found that AD took
my distribution groups and made most of them into security groups with
mailboxes.  I have been converting them back to strictly distribution
lists but I've noticed that once I've done that, the members of the
group can no longer see the public folders that they have permissions to
unless I give them Owner permissions.  I've checked and the "folder
visible" box is checked in all cases.  Anyone run across this?
