Managing Public Folders

Public Folders for Newsgroups

In previous versions of Exchange, public folders supported mapping an Internet newsgroup to an individual folder. This allowed users of public folders access to Usenet newsgroups using MAPI or Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) clients. Posts to the folder were propagated externally to the newsgroups and Exchange supported incoming push feeds and outgoing push or pull feeds. Now, Exchange 2000 provides the capability to create virtual directories for NNTP virtual servers. It is no longer necessary to administer a newsgroup through public folders. For more information, see Network News Transport Protocol.
