Managing Public Folders

Prepare the Subscriber Server

The subscriber is the organization that receives replicated content from a publisher. Changes, additions, and deletions can be made by the subscriber and replicated back to the publisher depending on the publisher's configuration.

To prepare a server to receive information:

  1. Create a Windows 2000 account on the subscriber server for the Replication Agent.
  2. Mailbox-enable the account to create a mailbox.
  3. Create a root folder for every portion of the folder hierarchy you are replicating. Subfolders are created automatically.
  4. Add the Replication Agent account as Owner for every folder.


  5. Important   If you do not grant the Replication Agent mailbox Owner permission on the publisher server, Default and Anonymous permissions assigned to the public folders are not replicated.

  6. Under Public Folders, create a public folder named ExchsyncSecurityFolder.
  7. Grant the Replication Agent account Folder Visible permission to ExchsyncSecurityFolder. Do not specify any Default or Anonymous permissions on this folder.

Tip   See the Windows 2000 documentation for more details on how to create, mailbox-enable, and set permissions for a user account.
