I asked a similar question earlier where I wanted to add permissions for a user / group to a particular public folder and all it's subfolders:-

get-publicfolder "\Information Systems" -recurse | add-publicfolderclientpermission -user "Domain Admins" -accessrights publishingeditor

My question is, now that I have the domain admins with permissions as publishing editor to this folder and subfolders, how do I remove a specific user from the permissions, regardless of whether they're owner, editor, publishing editor, etc?

Hi trecool,

As long as you know the explicit permission you wish to remove, the following command should get the job done

get-publicfolder "\Information Systems" -recurse | remove-publicfolderclientpermission -user Domain\userid Admins" -accessrights owner

This will remove all rights for the specified user

The problem is, this user has different permissions on different subfolders, isn't there a switch like "-accessrights all" that would remove everything?

trecool -accessrights owner is the equivalent of all it removes all possible permissions for the user from the targetted folder

I just ran this in my lab - works fine without the -accessrights parameter

Also, you could run the following command to remove all invalid users from public folder client permissions
Get-PublicFolder <TopOfFolderPathToStart>  -recurse  | Get-PublicFolderClientPermission | Where-Object {$_.User -like "NT User:*"} | Remove-PublicFolderClientPermission -Confirm:$false
