PF's a nightmare?  Say it isn't so :)
What were you looking for outside of what you find on
<> ?  
What extra four tabs are you seeing?  Are they the Exchange related tabs
associated with mail-enabling a PF?

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?


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.
