Hi all,

I have created a public folder and mail enabled it. works great. Only problem is that I only want certainindividuals to be able to view or access it. Is there anyway to prevent general users from viewing the folder and/or its contents?

Thanks,

Jonathan

In the Exchange System Manager, go to the properties of the Public Folder and assign the proper permissions.

Absolutely.  Go to the properties of the PF in question (in Outlook will work fine) and modify the Default and Anonymous permissions.  You will notice that there is a checkbox for "Folder Visible".  If you want everyone to be able to e-mail the PF, but only that, set the Default and Anonymous perms to Contributor (and uncheck the folder visible box).  Then, add the individuals to the PF and assign the appropriate rights.  Better yet, create a mail-enabled security group, add the invididuals to that group, then assign rights on the PF to that security group.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

ok, so how long until the change in permissions takes effect?

Should be fairly immediate, but I believe it can take up to 15 minutes.
