Access denied

Facility: win32

Exchange System Manager

Burk!!!!

Even worst... I tryed to set full controle to the administrators

n:\poly.ca\public folders.... in windows explorer

then I get the fu$?&&%?&%* message

You only have permission to view the current security information on PUBLIC FOLDERS.

HAAAAAAAAAA......

You only have permission to view the current owner on PUBLIC FOLDERS.

Hrm, first of all what version of exchange and NT do you have?

If its exchange 5.5 Just right click the site name or you can go down to the server name and right click that, then just go to the permission box and make yourself a permission admin.

If its 2000, drill down to folders then "all public folders", just right click and select the security tab, then add yourself with full permission.

The idea here is to supercede the folder and change its inherited permissions.

I hate it when users do that crap.
