That feature is not provided in any version of Outlook or Exchange that I'm aware of. You may synchronize a public folder into your OST file, however, by adding the folder to your favorites and configuring it to keep a local copy.Ed Crowley MVP " There are seldom good technological solutions to behavioral problems."

" and configuring it to keep a local copy" .? it is possible ? how can i do it?

Thanks Ed.

This would be the OST.

Right-click the public folder and select Add to Favorites.

In the profile (Account Settings), click the Exchange account > Change > More Settings > Advanced, and under Cached Exchange Mode Settings select Download Public Folder Favorites, and then OK your way out.

Good luck!
