Public folders are a common way people exchange information in an exchange environment. Even though the GUI is simple to use, you may need to create or work with public folders in mass. The example below will create a public folder using the PowerShell cmdlet New-PublicFolder.
We are going to create a new public folder called HR on the server Exch04.
· On your Exchange 2010 server, open the Exchange Management Shell.
· Type New-PublicFolder –Name HR –server Exch04
If you check the Public Folder Management Console (look for it in the Tools of the Exchange Management Console) you will see your new public folder.
For a complete description of the New-PublicFolder cmdlet, type Get-Help New-PublicFolder -Full in your Exchange Management Shell.
