Public Folder management in Exchange 2007

I have an issue where I need to remove and reset all the public folder permissions. The person who originally created the permission on the public folders used user names instead of groups. This has left me with tons of NT Users: UID's, not to mention a complete mess of user names.
What I was looking to do is use Remove-PublicFolderClientPermission, but instead of using this on a single PF, I would to run it on the root level PF and do a recursive change through all the PF's, and instead of selecting 1 user I would like to remove all users.
I have been able to modify, remove and add user permissions on a single user folder level but I have not been able to locate an answer to this question.
Can you use wildcards? or, Is there a way to reset the entire public folder store.
To go through this manually would take days.

Thanks for any and all help.

this tool call Microsoft Exchange Server Public Folder DAV-based Administration Tool and it basically able to reset public folder permission on do recursive change.

you should run this on a non-exchange server with .net framework 1.1 and 2 install (just to be sure)

sorry for the long delay in reponse -
That application only seems to work (or work correctly) with Exchange 2003. I have searched Microsofts site for a 2k7 version to no avail.
Does anyone know of a tool for Exchange 2k7 that will allow you to manage the permissions of PF's other then the above stated software?

Thanks

Sorry for the stupid long delay - I was on holiday.

The application suggested above does work fine on Exchange 2007 and it did help resolve my issues.
Thanks so very much.

Thanks for the solution, it worked great for me.  I did have to install .Net version 1.1 on my Vista 64bit machine before it would work.
