Hi - we are running Exchange 2003 SP2 but are having trouble assigning Public Folder Permissions based on Groups (it's OK on individual accounts).

On the Server Hosting the Public Folder I can assign a set of rights (Via ESM and Client Permissions)  to a particular folder for a Global / Security Group that has been mail enabled fine but when I double click the group to see the members the members are empty. If I open with ADUC on teh same machine I can see the members just fine.

Any Ideas?

The recommendation is to use mail enabled Universal Security Groups when applying permissions to exchange public folders.  Do you operate in a multi-domain environment?  Does the list exist in domain A, but you are using an account in domain B to view the permissions?

Windows does not publish details of global groups in the GC (members), the GC is what ESM, and Outlook use to retreive details on groups.

Great - Universal Security did the trick and it now resolves to show the members - thanks for the advice very much appreciated>
