Can there be two folders with the same name in public folders in O365?

Now it is possible to create a folder with the same name in public folders in O365 via Outlook.

That's all right, please ?


Note: This is not possible via Exchange admin center.

Microsoft® Outlook® for Microsoft 365 MSO (Version 2403 Build 16.0.17425.20176) 64-bit

Hi @sc,

as far as I know it is not possible to have the 2 (or more) public folders with the same name.

I tested this in Exchange Online and in Outlook and I could not create a new public folder because the name is allready in use.

I also think that it should not be possible to do this.
But now I can do it.
