Hi,

I have user a, b, and c added under a distribution group called abcgroup.

I load up MS Outlook at the Admin, right click on the folder permissions, and click on the distribtuion group called abcgroup.  My goal is to have abcgroup permission to read only the public folder.

I end up getting the following error:

One or more useres cannot be added to the folder access list.  Non-local users cannot be given rights on this server.

I created seucrity groups as well with the same issue.

Thanks,
byd2k

verify that user a, b, and c are all 'regular' user mailboxes and NOT 'shared' mailboxes.

Thanks for the reply.  I had to step away from this project for awhile.  

I'll check the options tomorrow and see if that did the trick.
