SBS Public folder wizard and Exchange Native Mode

OK, I just heard the most ridiculous thing from Susan Bradley whom helped me with this issue…

I was attempting to use the SBS public folder wizard to add a public folder to my office SBS network…. simple, I thought.

But, about two months ago, I flipped the Exchange server over to Native mode.   Obvious thing to do since I am never ever going to have an older version of Exchange on my network.

It turns out that this wizard, even in SBS 2003 R2, does not work if you do this.   Silly, I know, but that’s the way it is 🙂

Personally, I would like to see a patch or workaround for this minor, but annoying issue.
