Exch2003 - Permissions on Public Folders

We created a folder in the Public Folders, titled "companies".

I gave user A and user B "owner" permissions on these folders, since they need to drag and drop e-mail messages in them (then the entire company can read them using this Public Folder).

However, now, when user A creates a sub folder (under "companies") and user B tries to drag and drop something in there (or out of there), he gets the error that he doesn't have the permission in that sub folder. (and vice versa, when user B creates a sub folder)

Doesn't the sub folder inherit the permissions which are set on the parent (companies) folder ?
Does the user that creates the sub folder every time has to specify the other user to have Owner rights ?
