A possible fix for a slow Mail.app
Authored by: cjwood on Jan 16, '07 01:53:18PM

What is the "Rest of the Story" to "As for Exchange there is a trick to not have the public folders checked in Mail, but that's another story..."?

I need to disable the synchronization of public folders.

A possible fix for a slow Mail.app
Authored by: zarqman on Mar 08, '07 06:08:30PM

there are two ways to make mail.app skip the public folders on exchange.

1) if you have access to manage exchange, public folders can be turned off entirely for imap. of course, this is for all users, all public folders, so it may not be acceptable in some instances.

2) this one's slightly fuzzy as i'm not in front of my work machine at the moment, so forgive me if i'm slightly off. you can configure the imap path prefix (advanced tab under accounts) with your exchange account name. for us at work this is "lastname, firstname" but that will vary by organization.

both of these have been tested successfully on exchange 2003.
