Group Client Permissions in Public Folders not being applied

Running
Windows Server 2003
Exchange 2003 SP2

I am attempting to manage the access to certain public folders with groups.
There is a folder i am attempting to restrict access to only certain users.

If i add the user into the client permissions, the permissions work fine, they can see the folder, add and delete items.

When adding a group, it adds into the client permissions list, i select them to be a "Publishing Editor" and click apply without an error. However the members of the group still do not have rights to see the folder, nor can they add or delete.

(the group is  a Global Secuirty group)

Security groups are not officially supported in exchange.  Some might work, groups inside of groups will not.. but you should really use user accounts.

also make sure your exchange server is native mode if its the only one and you do not plan on using exchange 2000 servers.

restarting the server let the permissions take hold, not exactly ideal in managing groups though
