How do I manage "Public Folders" permissions from exchange?

In Exchange System Manager I get to our Public Folders by going to:
COMPANY (Exchange)
>Administrative Groups
>>First Administrative Group
>>>Servers
>>>>EXCHANGE01
>>>>>First Storage Group
>>>>>>Public Folder Store
>>>>>>>Public Folders

If I right click on any folders and go to properties, I get the following error:
"The token supplied to the function is invalid

ID no: 80090308
Exchange System Manager"

How can I manage permissions?  Some of the people who own public folders no longer work here, and our previous admin deleted their accounts.

don't go into the public folder store
there is an object called folders and when you expand that you get to see "all public folders" under that you willsee all folders. manage them from there.
also if this is e2k3 sp2 then it has some improvements over sp1

When I go to:
COMPANY(exchange) > Administrative Groups > First Administrative Groups > Folders > Public Folders

I am immediately greeted with:
"The token supplied to the function is invalid

ID no: 80090308
Exchange System Manager"

And there are no items in the display.  If I right-click and go to the properties, it shows me that this is in fact mounted in the area I looked before, so this is the proper place that it "should" be.

Okay, on the SSL Certificate issue, do I have to purchase an SSL, and if I change the SSL to have the FQDN as I see the server from inside the network, does that mean it will break for everyone looking at the server from outside the network?  (I access it using a 10.0.0.x IP, but if I'm off site I'd access it via a global IP, and because of security policies I cannot access it from the global IP or domain name from within the network.)

Our server is exchange01.companyname.local. on the inside, but mail.companywebsite.com. on the outside of the network.

check the SSL on the public folder object in IIS and if it is enabled then disable it for the public object only. once done stop and restart the default website and then check

How do I disable it for the public object only?

And if I disable it, can I re-enable it later?

Also, which is the public folder object in IIS?  I do see under "Default Web Site" an object called "Public".  Is that what I'm looking for?

Will this impact the security of viewing the contents of the exchange public folders using outlook web access?

right click on the public virtual directory and click on properties
Click on directory security tab
under secure communications click on edit
over here the "require secure channel (ssl)" and "require 128-bit encryption should not be checked.

Okay, combining what you said earlier and the Microsoft Help article you referenced it works!!!

Thank you so much!

I was very hesitant to simply disable a secure certificate without knowing it wouldn't impact the security of the web-based site.

As per the article you referenced, I simply un-checked the require secure channel on the "Exadmin" object, applied that change, closed and re-opened exchange system manager and now it works!

Thanks for pointing out the details.  Knowing more about what I was doing made me feel much better about disabling the certificate.
