Yes, you can do that.  I subscribe to most mailing lists with public
folders, and typically, to complete the registration process, I have to
'send as' the public folder.
One thing to note is that public folders don't support free/busy
information, so as long as you don't need to invite these addresses to
meetings....   :)

Can users with permissions to the PF reply to e-mails with the PF e-mail
address by typing the address in the 'From' field of their e-mails?
This is simple enough for me to test, but just curious.  

Also, can PF's with SMTP addresses be assigned rules such as 'Auto
Reply' to all mails that arrive to that address?


Thanks for your input.

I personally like the use of public folders for this, I really don't
like having mailboxes used for multiple users. The use of public folders
allow for greater granularity of security on the box and a permanent
place to keep important mail and documents for the company. On the other
hand, I hate the use of public folders for the storage of files and
other data; it always seems that when they are turned on they always
become a files system in the end.
