    This has nothing to do with this post but i couldn’t find an answer anywhere and i think the question belongs to this blog:

    I’d like to crawl an Exchange 2007 Public Folder with Sharepoint 2007 but wasn’t able to set up the crawl successfully. Google showed me similar results from other users who also were not succesfull.

    Is it possible to crawl a Exchange 2007 Public Folder and if so how ?

    Thanks for all answers.

  6. Is the FileNet protocol handler still available for SharePoint? …specifically SP2013?
