Can some please help me figure out how to give permissions to public folders. I been on the Microsoft support and found these two  shell commands, but it doesn't seem to work. Am I doing something wrong?

When i put in the command it looks like it went though, but permissions doesn't seem to be changing.

I have exchange 2010, but I am not sure how I would give permissions to folders that i don't even have permissions to.  It seems like i can only do this with a Shell command.

in exchange EMC, open the "toolbox" there is a public folder management tool
there you can select your PF and assign permissions as well?

i just double checked, when you rightclick the PF "marketing" for example, then click "manage settings" then go through the wizard, you can assign people and their rights...

I assume you have exchange 2010 SP1?
