Exchange 2007 Public Folder Rights

We have a customer running Windows Server 2008 with Exchange 2007, The customer has a large amount of Public Folders and I need to give 2 users access so they can add / remove / delete public folders through Outlook.

I have already added them to the Public Folders administrator group with no luck and these users are not allowed Full Exchange Rights.

Is there anything else I can try?

Thanks

Well, the only other way is to use the scripts as detailed here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997966.aspx

You need to use the Shell to assign permissions, see here for how: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb310789(EXCHG.80).aspx

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

what if you use:

Add-ExchangeAdministrator -Identity 'username' -Role:'PublicFolderAdmin'

Would that not make them an Exchange admin?

These users must not have full Exchange admin access

Ok i tried that with no luck im afraid

Add-ExchangeAdministrator : The user/group "*USER*" is already a member of the group "CN=Exchange Public Folder Administrators"

Ok, how long ago did you add them to the public folder administrators group? Have they logged off since and back on again?

They were added yesterday around 10am so just over 24 hours ago.

The users went home yesterday logging off and shutting down the PCs

interesting :-/

What happens when they use Outlook to create new Public Folders then?

RichardBrainTechnical DirectorAuthor Commented:
The message is: ' Cannot create the folder. You do not have permission to create a subfolder under this folder. To check your permissions for the folder, right-click the top level folder, and then click Properties on the shortcut menu. See the folder owner or your administrator to change your permissions.

And if you set the permissions through outlook using someone who has access, what happens then?

I have done this to one folder and it works but i cant do it for every folder one by one via outlook because there are hundreds

Glen KnightCommented:
If you set it at the top of the tree the permissions should cascade, permissions for PF's should be managed through Outlook anyway

The furthest up the tree i can go is All Public Folders, I right click and go to properties, in there i get a choice of:

Advanced or Folder Size
