Exchange 2003 Hosting Multiple Companies on a Single Server and Public Folder Management.

Greetings:

I'm already familiar with the basics of hosting multiple companies on a single EXCH2003 system, but in all the documentation, I've never found anyone addressing the issue of public folders.  In my situation, I need to completely hide public folders from different companies from each other.  The best that I can manage with security and permissions is to deny access to the folder, but not actually "hide" it from certain groups or users.

Any suggestions?

Even when you set the permissions on a public folder to be none, for some reason MS defaults a check mark in "Folder Visible".  Don't ask me why, but when you're assinging the permission of none to someone, make sure you take an extra step of unchecking that.

I have also found that when you set permissions using groups, you have to make sure the group is located in the global address list.  If it is not, the group does not have a "link" to AD to verify members.  Basically the way MS explained it to me was that any client permission associated with the exchange databases first goes to the excahnge database, then the edb's connect to AD.

I have a hosted exchange with 100's of domains, and none of my clients can see anything about each other.

Let me double-check my settings, as I'm 99.9% sure that I had unchecked "folder visible."  In fact, I think even after we unchecked it, and even rebooted, it still had some problems.

Let me know...  I will be more than happy to go through all my permissions with you so that we can get this resolved.

I'm beginning to think that this is an exchange problem, as I can't actually hide the folders. However, I'll assume that that's the case and give you some nice points.
