Exchange 2007 Public Folder Permissions

Hi all,

I have 2 exchange servers (1 edge transport and 1 mailbox/hub/ext.).  The servers operate in a domain.  Everything is working with the email.  I have OWA working as well.  My problem is the public folders.  I can create public folders using the exchange shell and the consol.  I found the PFDAVAdmin tool for assigning permissions.  I setup my domain account as the exchange public folder admin.  I can not add subfolders to my test public folder.  I then used the PFDAV tool and gave my account ownership over the test folder.  After the folder ownership change, in outlook, I could then assign permissions and even delete the test folder, but I still cannot add subfolders.  What I need to do is setup my account as the public folder admin (which I have done) so I can just create/edit/delete folders from outlook and not use the shell (which is annoying).
Thanks.

Exchange caches permissions, so you may have to wait a little while before you can create folders.
Also note that you cannot create folders at the top level, you have to create them under "All Public Folders".

Do all public folder creation and permissions through Outlook. It makes life so much easier. Only use the shell or EMC for doing the mail enabling bits.
By doing it through Outlook you should not have problems with creation of sub folders.

OK, so I setup my account as the public folder admin.  I have deleted my test public folder.  Now I have the parent Public Folders, then 2 subfolders, Favorites and All Public Folders.  In Outlook, I still cannot create subfolders.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

using the EMC, I added a new Exhcange Administrator, I chose my account, selected Public Folder Administrator, finished the Wizard.  Yet I still cannot add subfolders via exchange.

I added myself as the PF Admin yesterday.  All Public Folders is where I usually create public folders.  This is where I created them on another exhcange 2000 server (not apart of this topology)

OK... I got it working.  I think it was a combination of Cache and AD.  Thanks for your suggestions.

I still cannot add an alias address to the properties of a public folder.  I see all other properties, but not the mail tab.  Can any one help me with this in Exchange 2007.  We are running Outlook 2003 at the desktop.

maanderson - this is an old question. Unlike a forum it is not possible to "bump" questions back up the list. The only people who will see your post are those that have already participated. Instead you should post your question as a new question in the Exchange Server Zone which will allow other experts the chance to see the question and respond.
