Are you doing this to give the PF rights to something else?  I guess I
just don't understand why that type of design.  If your saying add it to
a distribution list then yes, we do that here all the time.  We have
many "Alert-*" PFs that are a member of a dist. group that alert on
different hardware and software statuses across the corp.  Those groups
also have personal mailboxes, pagers, ouside contacts, etc in them,
never have had a problem with it.
As for your side note, you are right, you have to use the backwards
approach, but it accomplishes the same thing.  Call it a bug, feature,
whatever, but I think it has something to do with the fact the PF
doesn't actually have a SID.

Subject: [exchangelist] Public folders and security groups 
Is there any best practice or reason not to add a mail enabled public
folder to a security group?
Also as a side note, I can only add a PF to a group from the PF "memeber
of " back link. 
When I try to add the PF from the group as a "memeber", I can never find
the folder(in either the Win2k version of ADUC or the Winxp/2k3
I have selected "users,groups,computers,and other objects", but it never
comes up.
Is this by design or am I just retarded?
Thanks alot
