I have a problem whereby I want to configure the Outlook security patch via the "Outlook Security Settings" public folder on exchange.

However, this requires the folder to be places at the root of "All Public Folders". None of our accounts seem to have owner permissions to this folder. I did not setup this exchange server. If I look at the Summary tab for the All Public Folders page, I have "Custom" - and the options defined are Create Subfolders, Read Items, and Folder visible.

How can I grant permissions on the root of Public folders? I cannot seem to find anything about how to do this. The only place I can grant permissions is a subfolder in the root, and down from that subfolder.

If I got it, you need to set permissions for folders creation below "All public folders".

Go to the exchange administrator prg, then select your site / configuration / site information bank config / properties.
In the High level folder creation tab, set the allowed people or the forbidden people you want, thus opening or closing folder creation just below "All public folders".

That's the only way I know to customize High level public foder creation, which is wide open by default. By the way, the "All public folders" owner seems unuseful since the administrators hold the job.

Thankyou,


The Top level folder creation was granted to only two users within our exchange site.

You description of the path was slightly out. Its

Site \ Configuration \ Information Store Site configuration \ Properties.



Thanks once again, this has been bugging me for ages, and I could not find a thing on the net.
