exchange 2010 public folder permissions

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.

Add-RoleGroupMember -Identity "Public Folder Management" -Member Tony


Add-PublicFolderAdministrativePermission -Identity "\Marketing" -User "Chris" -AccessRights AllExtendedRights -InheritanceType SelfAndChildren

I don't know what version of exchange you are running , but if it's 2010 you can assign permissions from outlook on the folders

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.

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?
