I had to restore my dB from a disaster with public folders. Since then there have been a lot of surprises.

Our Public folders can not post new messages they go straight to the inbox. Unless you create a new public folder can you past. Anything from the pst restore does not (goes to inbox)

The same with the dist lists. If I create a new list no problems. But anything restored from the .pst is hit or miss. Is there like a schema or AD issue that needs to be addressed.

Please help... as of late I have not had as much great success as I have had in the past fromExp Exchange!!!! Renew my hope. Thanks!!!!!

Perform a integrity check on Public database files.
Otherwise do a repair of db files and then defrage and run Isinteg -s servername -fix -test alltests.
Since these dbfiles will not be in larger size, it should not take more downtime.
Try this work around and post results.

What exactly did you restore?  How have you restored distribution lists from a backup?  What did you use for the restore?

Can you mail enable a restored public folder and have it work properly?
