Configure Public Folder Settings in Exchange 2007


Configure Public Folder Settings in Exchange 2007



This lesson discusses how to configure public folder settings in Exchange 2007 for individual folders.  As noted in previous lessons, the properties dialog for individual folders can be accessed by using the Public Folder Management Console, which is launched as a separate application from within the Exchange Management Console from the Toolbox.  Note that a mail-enabled public folder has more configuration options than one that has not been mail-enabled.
When mail-enabled, additional tabs will appear in support for the additional mail-related functions it now supports, such as Mail Flow Settings and Exchange General. This is on top of the default tabs that a standard public folder comes with.
On the other hand, a default public folder that has not been mail-enabled will have three tabs here: General, Replication and Limits.  The General tab will show standard information like the total number of items that are in the folder, the size of the folder, when it was last modified and so forth. There is also a checkbox for “Maintain per user read and unread information for this folder,” which allows the user to see if a message has been read or unread in Microsoft Outlook.
Next would be a Replication tab where other public stores can be added in order to configure replication between multiple public stores.  A custom schedule for the public folder database replication is established here, and the “Local replica age limit” can also be tweaked in terms of days. The final tab in the properties dialog would be the Limits tab.  The configuration under the Limits tab defaults to the database quota defaults, retention defaults and age defaults. You can change this by deselecting any one of these options to configure your own database quota defaults, number of days to retain deleted items and age limits for replicas.
We hope that you found this video informative and you know how to configure public folder settings in Exchange 2007.
