Using the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator program, you can specify therecipients container in which you want to store new public folders on aMicrosoft Exchange Server computer.
The Public Folder Container option is available on the General page of theInformation Store Site Configuration object's Properties dialog box. Thisoption lets you choose the recipients container where all new publicfolders created in this site appear. For example, you may want togroup all public folders in a recipients container called Public Folders.Grouping public folders in this manner makes it easier to locate a specificpublic folder from the address book and from the Administrator window.

Changing the public folder container changes the location where all newpublic folders are stored. This does not affect the public folders thathave already been created. If no container is specified, the default is therecipients container for the site.

To specify the location on the Microsoft Exchange Server computer to store newpublic folders, follow these steps:
  1. Start the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator program.
  2. Select the Information Store Site Configuration object located in the Configuration container.
  3. On the File Menu, click Properties.
  4. In the Properties dialog box, select General, then select Modify.
  5. In the Public Folder Container dialog box, select a recipients container where all new public folders are stored.
