Inheriting permissions in public folders

I need to grant someone permission to a specific folder in the public folders.  Problem I am having is that when I grant a user permission to a specific folder he is not inheriting permissions of the folders below that.

Is there a way of doing this?

Many thanks

The inheritance only works when the folder is created. Future changes to the permissions are not inherited.
You can propagate permission changes down to the sub folders using ESM. With Exchange 2003 SP1 and older it replaces the permissions, so if you have different permissions on the sub folders those would be lost.
With Exchange 2003 SP2 you can add a user and propagate the permissions down without loosing permissions of others.

Right Click on root Folder and click on All tasks and then Propogate settings.Now select Folder Rights and click OK .This will inherit all permissions to subfolders.

i have sp2 installed but it does not propagate permissions. Is there something else I need to do other than setting permissions on the Public folder

in e2k3 SP2 there is an option called "manage settings"
you can access it by right clicking on the public folder and then clicking on the "All tasks"option
once in it select the "modify client permissions"

With Exchange 2003 SP2, the best way to add someone to the public folder is to use ESM. Right click on the folder and choose All Tasks, then Manage Settings. A wizard will then start. Choose modify client permissions, then next and add users. Add the user that way and the setting will be propagated down.
