One of my customer asked this question, “what is the Difference between Mailbox store & Public folder store objects in Active Directory & Exchange System Manager ?”.


 Yep, not only him, many of us want to know the same?



  • @ Active Directory Sites and Services, mailbox store and public folder store objects are represented by leaf nodes that do not contain child objects.

  • @ Exchange System Manager,  mailbox store and public folder store objects are represented as nodes in the console tree.

  • ESM tree contain several child containers, such as Logons, Mailboxes or Public Folders, Public Folder Instances, Replication Status, and Full-Text Indexing.
