Not all public folders moved from Exchange 2003 to 2010

We moved the public folders from the old Exchange 2003 server to the new 2010

server, and I thought they were all sync'ed up, after which I removed the old

Exchange 2003 from the domain. Apparently, they weren't all migrated, as

about 1/2 of the public folders we click still try to be accessed from the

old Exchange server. I made a backup of the public folders into a .pst, but I

haven't been able to figure out how to delete the old public folders

remaining on the Exchange 2003 server. I figure if I can delete them, I can

reimport the old public folders.

I've spent quite a bit of time Googling how to remove the folders, but at

this point I haven't had any luck. Does any one have any pointers? Thanks

very much.

I figured out a way to do this, but probably not the best way. I dismounted

the old public folder store, renamed the store, attempted to remount the

store; but since the store had changed names, I had it create a new public

folder store. After this, I imported the folders from the PST I had created

of the public folders prior to the migration. I mail-enabled them, and I'm

pretty much back up and running.
