This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to mail-disable public folders.

Before you perform the following procedure, you must perform the actions in one of the following sections based on whether you are working with the release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Public Folder Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

To perform the following procedure in the RTM version of Exchange 2007, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

Also, before you perform this procedure, be aware that in the RTM version of Exchange 2007, you can manage public folders only in the Exchange Management Shell. You cannot use the Exchange Management Console.

  1. Start the Exchange Management Console.

  2. In the console tree, click Toolbox.

  3. In the result pane, click Public Folder Management Console, and then in the action pane, click Open Tool. The Public Folder Management Console appears.

  4. In the public folder tree, click or expand Default Public Folders, and then if any public folders are displayed in the result pane, select the parent folder of the public folder that you want to mail-disable.

  5. In the result pane, select the public folder that you want to mail-disable.

  6. In the action pane, click Mail Disable. A warning dialog box appears.

  7. Click Yes to confirm that you want to mail-disable the public folder.

  8. To indicate that this is a mail-disabled public folder, the icon for the public folder changes.

    Mail-disabled public folders are represented by the following icon.
