Hi all,

 

My client is eliminating public folders as part of an Exchange upgrade. I'm the change manager and want to be able to create a matrix comparison between group mailbox, SharePoint, and public folders so that users will be able to make the connection, and I can identify any gaps. I've never used PFs before.

 

Has anybody done this? If not, can you tell me anything SharePoint doesn't handle compared to public folders?

Me and fellow MVPs published an eBook on this recently, you can get it for free over at the Quadrotech site: https://www.quadrotech-it.com/resources/whitepaper/public-folder-ebook/

 

Or in case you don't like giving your email address for some reason, it's also available on Amazon for a small charge.
