Public Folder information RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an E2k7 environment, with public folders. 

    In 2003 you could find the email address assigned to a public folder by looking at the E-mail Addresses tab in Public Folder properties. 

    How can you find this information with 2007? 

    PS doesn't return this info with get-publicfolder, EMC doesn't display this info? 

    Thanks!

  • That indicates the folder is corrupt and 2007 doesnt "know" its mail-enabled. Make note of the  SMTP addresses and then mail-disable and mail-enable the folder again and see if that works..

  • Same way in 2007. Under the email addresses tab under the properties of the folder.

    or Get-MailPublicFolder via powershell

    By looking at the "E-Mail Addresses" tab on the public folder
    properties page in the EMC?

    How about get-mailpublicfolder?
     
    >EMC doesn't display this info?
     
    Yes, it does.

  • Thanks Andy, this is what I was thinking.  Going through the PFs in 2k7 folders that are seen as mail-enabled do have the email tab.

    Do you know of a way to automate the process of finding folders that 2k7 doesn't see as mail-enabled?  I don't see any way of identifying this with PS to run a script that would mail-enable.  Maybe I need to look at it from an AD view, not Exchange.  ??

    It could be that when this folder was created, a few Exchange admins ago, it was created with a dot at the beginning and/or spaces in the alias.  2003 doesn't seem to mind this.

    I suppose you could get a list of all public folders from
    get-publicfolder. Then get another list of folders from
    get-mailpublicfolder | get-publicfolderstatistics | select
    identity,folder,folderpath. Match the content of the two ists and you
    should have the folders that aren't mail-enabled.
