        Microsoft® Exchange 2000 Server and Exchange Server 2003 include two types of information databases:

        • Mailbox stores, which hold personal mailbox information

        • Public folder stores, which are a shared repository

        Many administrators think that public folders are difficult to configure and manage, and, therefore, public folders are frequently underused. However, if you understand when and where public folders are best deployed and how to manage public folders effectively, you can help users collaborate on projects and manage shared data more efficiently.
