Public Folder Permissions

Posted on 2006-06-01

In the Public Folders, I get certain contacts within a list that are not editable, despite the user having Owner permissions on the parent folder. Why are only a few contacts within the list Read-Only and others are OK, especially newly created items.

    Explain a little bit more... Are you saying that when user click new contact and create it, it is not editable any more??? Or is it imported from somewhere???
    Please post the exact client permission for public folder here please....

    Our main contact list is in an Outlook Public Folder. Users create seperate folders from which they drag and drop from the master list, certain contacts that pertain to the job they are working on. All users have "Owner" permission settings on all folders. On some contacts, the contact comes up as Read Only. This is the problem.

    Can you replicate this problem anytime you want or does it happen randomly ???

    Also could multiple people be working on that contact which might have made it read-only....

    Try opening a contact or similar operation from 1 user and try to move from another user to see if it says readonly....
