If you are only doing one folder and no subfolders then you can do it quite easily through EMC --> Toolbox --> public folder Administration

There is no short-cut to add the permissions to acces the public folders in Exchange 2007 Sever
The only proper method to add permissions to public folders in Exchange 2007 server is through Exchange Management Shell. Please refer the following links

I did find these 2 articles before I posted this, but I dont see how to add read access to all users and then assign full access to like 5 users.

Do you have a ")" in the display name of the PF?

Why not put the people in a group, one for read and one for full access and then use the cmdlets to assign the permissions to the group? That way if you have more users to give PF permissions to in the future, then you can add them to the groups.

Hmmm, did the account you were running PFDavadmin as have any brackets in the Display name?

Not sure how to setup via the shell.
Like if I wanted to give full access to a group called FULL, what would I type in at the shell and which add command would I use?

Weird, I have never seen that error with PFDavAdmin before...

MegaNuk3Commented:
Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "<PF Path>" -AccessRights Owner -User "FULL"

example:
Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\My Public Folder" -User Chris -AccessRights CreateItems

Which is from here:

by the way, in Exchange 2010 you can set PF permissions in the EMC again, have a look at number 9 from here:

I was wondering why you selected PFDavadmin as the solution ;-)

Actually I did not use it. I just created the new public folder via outlook. So I gave you both points for both giving good info...
Hey Exch 2010 you can use the EMC once again to setup public folders and asign rights....

I mentioned E2k10 and EMC in a couple posts above... ;-)

In E2k10 they have replaced PFDAVadmin with ExFolders.
