Permissions on PF from ESM console

How can I give permissions to few people to create Public Folders and modify the SMTP address without giving them Exchange Admin permissions. I need this so as to delegate few exchange tasks to Helpdesk people.

Thanks

You would have to give them Exchange View Only Admin rights and assign permissions for this question

"How can I give permissions to few people to create Public Folders and modify the SMTP address without giving them Exchange Admin permissions"

at PF Tree level - this would propogate at PF Store level later.

I gave them exchange view only permissions. But when I expand all public folders, I get an error message below

---------------------------
Exchange System Manager
---------------------------
The HTTP service used by Public Folders is not available, possible causes are that Public stores are not mounted and the Information Store service is not running.

When I open ESM using domain admin privileges, I am able to expand Public folders without any issues.

I gave owner permissions on the public folder to create a public folder, but I dont get an option to create a new public folder. Could you let me know if there is a way to meet this requirement?
