Recreate Public Folder Address List RRS feed

  • Question

  • I deleted the Public Folder Address List and would like to recreate it.  The new-addresslist command and the EMC don't have options for Public Folders.  I'm thinking of creating a basic one and using ADSI to change the query.

    Anyone ever recreate the Public Folder Address list?

    (This is in a lab so don't freak out.) hehehhehe

  • What do you mean with a public folder address list? is it a folder with contact objects?
    Simply use Oultook and create a new folder. You can then specify what type of content it should contain.

  • No, I'm talking about the Exchange Address Lists.  By Default there are a few, All Users, All Groups, All Contacts and Public Folders.  I'm working on Address List separation and one of the instructions is to delete the Public Folders address list.

    I now want to recreate the list and nest it under one of the companies.

  • Using ADSI Edit worked.

    I created a new Address list then added the query.  RecipientType -eq 'PublicFolder'

  • I take it back.  Looks like it just picked up the Mail Enabled Groups.  :(

  • I keep getting the -Container arg wrong. 

    new-addresslist -Name "Public Folders" -recipientfilter {(RecipientType -eq 'PublicFolder')} -container "\company1"

  • container is the location for the addresslist in the addresslist hierarchy.

    do you have another addresslist at the top named 'company1'? then new "addresslist list will be placed "below" it.

  • I ended up creating a variable and using it.

    $addrlist = get-addresslist 'Company1'

    new-addresslist -Name "Public Folders" -recipientfilter {(RecipientType -eq 'PublicFolder')} -container $addrlist
