Give Delegate Permissions to all folders at one time, not one at a time

I have added a delegate to a mail box as an owner, but the delegate can only see the main five folders I gave permissions too. There are many other folders in the under mailbox they need to have permissions too. However, when I add them in the permissions and give them full owner rights to the top level folder the permissions do not flow down to the subfolders.

I have made them owner of the Mailbox but this has not helped.

I have found this is only for the folders that were already there. If I create new folders the permissions go down the subfolders just fine.

Is there a way to give permissions on the top level folder and force them to flow downward. Or does this have to be done for each individual folder?

Greetings z11Tech,
I'm afraid that the rights do not propogate on existing folders, but should if you grant the rights on the top folder and then create sub folders underneath...

Unless I am wrong, I am afraid the last sentence of your post is true :-(
New folders will inherit permissions of the parent folder.
I have not found yet the way to propagate through code permissions settings or atoarchive settings but I still have hope....
