Get them to add the folder to their Outlook favorites.

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.
