Can't create public folders in Exchange 5.5 even with xchg admin

Hi,

Where are the permissions for being able to create public folders?  Even when I log in as the full Exchange Administrator account, I get "Unable to create the folder.  You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object.  See the folder contact or your system administrator."

Thanks in advance!

Use the Exchange Admin program to assign rights to the Top Level (or what ever level) of the Public Folders. It would be easiest if you were logged in as the Exchange Service Account or Equiv.
You can then propogate the Permissions down to subfolders if you need to.

Then you should be able to create PF's in Outlook.

It gives me the error that I stated above when I try to do it in Outlook, even when using the exchange svc acct.

The Exchange Admin program does not have a property sheet for the top level of the public folder area, either:
myorg - Folders - Public Foders
or
myorg - site1 - Configuration - Servers - Srv1 - Public Information Store - Public Folder Resources

So where can I view the permissions?  

Thanks in advance as this is High urgency to one of my end users!
