  • Exchange 2010 Public Folder removal

    I have a mixed environment (temporarily) of 2003 and 2010. There are only 2 accounts and 1 public folder store on Exch 2003. I began 2010 with a PF store, but want to stop using it. I have removed the replica on Exchange 2003 pointing to my 2010 server, but I am unable to remove the 2010 PF store.

    What do I need to do to get rid of PF on 2010. I am only keeping the PF on 2003 for another 2 weeks and will remove it permanently, though I have to keep 2003 up until a Compuware Changepoint upgrade.

    Any thoughts?

    You can only remove public folders if you have Outlook 2007 and higher exclusively and after you have removed Exchange 2003. Until you have achieved both of those you need to retain public folders.
