I have successfully shared 2 folders from a user’s mailbox, and they are visible when adding this mailbox to other’s user’s in outlook.

My problem is, there’s 100’s of subfolder’s that aren’t showing up, and the only way to make them visible is to go to each folder and set the correct permissions.  

My question, is there a way to run a script in exchange powershell that will share folders and subfolder’s all from a script?  We have used the script for public folder’s to set permission’s, but haven’t figured it out for user mailboxes.  

Thanks.

I'm sure there is a way to use powershell to script this but it may be easier to just use a problem called PFDAVAdmin.

Run that program and connect to your Exchange server. Be sure to tick the Mailboxes button when connecting. You can navigate to the top level folder that you wish to apply the permissions to subfolders from. Right click on it and select Propagate Folder ACEs. Place a check mark in the permissions that you wish to propagate down to the rest of the subfolders then click Ok.

Just an additional piece of information. PFDAVAdmin has since been replace by another program called Exfolders for Exchange 2010.

I could only get PFDAVAdmin to work on a windows 2003 server, not on win 08.  But the tool saved me alot of time.  

thank you!
