Create a Mail-Enabled Public Folder in Exchange 2007

Microsoft is threatening to deprecate Public Folders, though they claim they will maintain support through 2016. The alternative, Windows Sharepoint Services, isn’t a good fit for all circumstances … specifically when you would like to use a Public Folder as a mailing list. Use the commands below to create a new Mail-Enabled Public Folder:

Create public folder:
– New-PublicFolder “Folder Name”
– Enable-MailPublicFolder “\Folder Name”
– Set-MailPublicFolder -Identity “\Folder Name” -EmailAddressPolicyEnabled 0
– Set-MailPublicFolder -Identity “\Folder Name” -PrimarySMTPAddress “
