What is "Folder contact" public file client permission?
Posted on 2003-10-28
When setting client permissions on public folders in Exchange 2000, one of the available permissions is called "Folder contact". By default, it seems to assign this permission to the folder owner.
The little information I could find on this permission seems to indicate that a message is sent to the "folder contact" in certain situations (e.g. problems within the public folder). Given that the owner of most of our folders is the "Administrator" account which is not mail enabled, I'm assuming any messages Exchange is sending are not being received by anyone.
What exactly is this permission? Is it anything I need to be concerned with? If so, how should this permission be used? Should a real person be set as the folder contact to receive messages?
Any light you can shed will be appreciated.
