Hey Paul, 
I too have experisnced the same results.  What I'm interested in is whether or 
not you have the public folder reciveing mail formatted as "post" or "email" 
and if it makes any difference.  (referenced from article here: which instructs the use of this 
script:  <> )
Maybe if the messagees are sent as true emails, the unread count will be listed.

Subject: [exchangelist] Public Folders in Outlook all but worthless as it 

Hi All
I have an interesting problem that I really hope someone can assist me with. I 
have set up a public folder and allowed it to be shown on the GAL. Users can 
send mail to it just fine. Just one problem. When the mail arrives although the 
messages are in bold no message count is shown for the folder? What disturbs me 
is that I have tried it on two different servers (one E2000 and one E2003) and 
got the same results form both. 
Quite frankly without that the whole concpet is a total waste of time to me as 
my clients won't accept that. Why would anyone look at one of potentially many 
folders if they do not know there is anything in it!! Is there any way to 
change this to work more sensibly please?
Many thanks in advance.
Paul Lemonidis.
