We have Exchange 2007 Server with outlook 2007 clients.

On outlook under folder list, there is public folders and i would like to know how to change the permissions / ownership. There are a some Calendars and contact lists inside public folders, i have access to most of them but dont have access to public folders itself to create a new calendar / contact.

is the permission set up on exchange server? or outlook itself?

Unfortunately the post above is about a BETA of Exchange 2007 SP1, which hasn't been released yet. It is due shortly, hopefully within the next couple of weeks - although nothing has been confirmed yet.

Until the service pack is released you will have to set the permission using Powershell or PowerGui (http://www.powergui.org).

Or if you know who is an owner, get them to change the permission.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Public Folder permissions can be set through Outlook. That is the easiest way and the way that I prefer to do it. You can set it through the server, but you will need to use PowerShell to set the Client Permissions. However to set the permissions you need to be an owner.
Until SP1 is released there is no Public Folder management in the GUI.

I hope this helps someone out there:
I had created a public folder for a company let's call it Test and a subfolder inside that folder, let's call it Test1
so \Test\Test1
if I wanted to add user samantha to the owner group I did this:
AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 -TopPublicFolder \Test -User Samantha -Permission Owner
I pulled the username from the appropriate OU in AD and that should do it!
I hope it helps.

Hi Rafael,

Thanks for your comment. What if it is a worded folder name e.g work in Progress, how do you type that command in PowerShell
