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?

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....
