Send messages to a public folder?

I don't think it can be done but I've got to check. Can message be sent to a public folder instead of a mailbox.<br><br>

Re: Send messages to a public folder?

Sure... you can do this.

The easiest way to pull this off is to create a public distribution list, add the public folder as a recipient and then use that public DL as a message recipient.

You'll only be able to add the public folder to the PDL if you unhide it from the address book in the Exchange administrator (they're all hidden from the address book by default). Once you get it in the PDL, however, you can go ahead and hide it again if you want.

Re: Send messages to a public folder?

Question on this - I'm trying to do this (Unity 3.1.3 - E@K-SP2) and it will only let me add current Unity Subscribers to a PDL - not E2K Address book entries - am i doing somehting wrong? :-)

Thanks!

you can't do this via the SA (we will only show mailusers/contacts/dls... not all AD objects such as public folders). You'll need to do this via ADUC.

Re: Send messages to a public folder?

well... yes... the Unity public folders ARE e2K (AD) public folders. We don't maintain a seperate DB with our own DLS. When you create one in the SA it creates one in AD and you can "see" DLs in AD we didn't create etc...

however adding members to a DL via the SA you're restricted to a few object types and it doesn't inlcude public folders.

Re: Send messages to a public folder?

ok - but this still requires that the subscriber that points to that DL be an Internet subscriber right? (I assume since the DLs don't show up as importable e2k boxes - presumably because they have no home mailbox... :-) ?
