Public Folder permissions

Hi I am running exchange 2003 and i am connecting to it through outlook 2007 through rpc/https.

My help desk team have asked me to create them a calendar which they can all access.

In Outlook I expand my folder list and go to public folders and right click all public folders and click new. I click new folder and select calendar items I call it Helpdesk Calendar, when I click ok I get  message saying cannot create the folder you do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object, see your administrator.

I thought you didnt need to make any changes in ESM to create Public folders
Can anyone help?

by default users don't have permissions to create to level folders in exchange 2003.
you need to grant your account that right, before you can create a top level folder

to grant yourself these rights, the steps are

open exchange system manager
right click on your exchange organization name and click properties
go into the security tab and check the permission level for "Create top level public folder"
if you are not able to see the security tab then check

You can create public folders from your outlook.
Apparently you need to grant yourself more permissions throught the ESM.

In the ESM if you go to the properties of the PF tree you need to give your account Control to create and modify Public Folders.
For this your need to go to ESM and the PF tree and go to properties and go to the security tab and add your account and give it the rights.
