A public folder tree is a hierarchical grouping of public folders that can exist on one or more Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server public information store. A public information store can host exactly one (and only one) public folder tree.

In Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5, the system is constrained to a single public folder tree called "Public Folders." In Exchange 2000, there can be multiple public folder trees.

A public folder tree is the unit of public information store deployment, and the unit of hierarchy replication. This implies that placeholders for all public folders within a public folder tree will be represented on all public information stores associated with that public folder tree.

Exchange 2000 will continue to support the MAPI public folder tree similar to that of Exchange Server 5.5, but the system will continue to be constrained to a single MAPI public folder tree.
