Hi all

Any light that could be shed on this would be very much appreciated. I have 
tried looking it up in books and at muiple TechNet articles to no avail.

The whole subject seems to suffer from a complete lack of decent documentation.

Many thanks in advance.

Subject: Exchange 2003 Public folders

Hi all

Exchange 2003 and public folders seem a complete nightmare with little if any 
logic to the permissions structure in regard of emailing to them. I am having 
issues with users sending messages to public folders. The fact that you can 
drag and drop to a folder but the same user cannot send to it even when logged 
on and online seems utter stupidity quite honestly. TechNet article 319735 says 
to grant the anonymous user create permissions? Surely at that point you can 
forget security altogether? AD security except if you want to send email to 
public folders, in that event you simply have no security as absolutely anyone 
would be able send to it surely?;en-us;319753&Product=exch2003

The other thing that baffles some is why do some folders have an extra four 
tabs in Exchange System Manger MMC.

Can anyone shed any light on my nightmare please. Public folders were not 
exactly nice in 5.5 but they now seem to be 10 times worse!

Many thanks in advance.
