I need to figure out if a specified user has access to a messages in a Public Folder on an Exchange Server SP1 installation.
I am planning to use the Exchange WebService in order to do this, but I am unable to find a way to check access rights when examining the SDK documentation. How can this be done, if possible at all?

ikm7176: Yes, that link gives useful background information about public folders and their security setting. Accessing these settings programmatically is what I am looking for.
