Public folders in Outlook

📅 2019-Oct-10 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

In the open source world, we are used to having a web archive of every email sent to a mailing list. This is useful to search for old emails.

In the contex of the Microsoft Exchange email server, distribution lists (DL) are akin to traditional mailing lists. Emails sent to a DL can be archived in a public folder.

Microsoft Outlook is the email client for Exchange. And the problem is that accessing public folders in Outlook is not straightforward. Public folders do not seem to be visible in the default Mail view of Outlook.
