Exchange 2003 System Manager if you have it in your environment. Client Permissions, then Propagate settings to subfolders.

Nenadic: In Exchange server 2003 System manager. I right click on the public folder -> properties-> permissions-> client permissions. I cannot see the propagate option there. Where exactly it is located?

amitkulshrestha: Using PFDavAdmin, I only want one user's permissions to propagate, not all user's permissions to propagate on the subfolders. Is it possible to propagate only 1 user's permissions to propagate rather than all the permissions on the subfolders?

Yes you can do it for one user also. Add that user, commit changes and then propagate it.

IT_Chipperfield:
1. Right-click on the folder where you want to start with new permissions.
2. In All Tasks, select Manage Settings.
3. Select option Modify Client Permissions.
4. Click on Add users or Modify a user, depending on whether there already are permissions for that user in there.
5. Select the user and allocate appropriate permissions.
6. They will propagate all the way down without affecting other users.
