How to hide a public folder except for users with explicit permissions

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.

under the Permissions tab, under Client 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.

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