Here is a quick question
I have a public calendar in the public folder for my exchange 2003 system

I have been editing the permission and noticed that the default take presidence over all the other settings.

So if the default is set to reviewer and I set a group to owner, the group ends up with the default access of reviewer.  

Will removing the default setting break anything?
Should I remove the default setting to make this work or is there something else I am missing?

Thanks

The best practise I use is quite simple - Default is set to none.
Public Folders operates on most permissive, not most restrictive, so if default is set to reviewer and a user has Owner permissions, then the owner permission for that user wins.

When I set the default permission to reviewer and give myself owner, it workes correctly.
When I set the default permission to reviewer and give the group I am a part of owner permissions, it throws those people into the default.  

Any ideas as to why the group isn't working?

What type of group is it?
Not all groups work for public folder permissions.

You need to use USGs not GSGs.

Not that I have found.
You have to build up knowledge from various sources as each one has its own role to play. I look at most things from an Exchange point of view, so I tend to only work with mail enabled groups. I tend to create everything in USG so that I can use the group for email and permissions.
