What are Public Folders?

Public Folders are a feature in Microsoft Exchange that are designed for shared data access and provide an easy way to collect, organise and share information with other people in your organisation.

Content in public folders is organised in a hierarchial layout - similar to files and folders in Windows Explorer. Users will see the full hierarchy in Outlook making it easy for them to browse and access the content they require.
