Exchange Public Folder permissions

SvenIA asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

In our company we store project related e-mails in the Exchange 2003 public folders. We have 5 departments within the company, wich all have 1 public folder with lots of subfolders.

The problem is, when I set permissions for a new employee on the root public folder, the subfolders do not inherrit these permissions. So I have to set the permissions manually on all those subfolders. And there are a lot of them!

Is there a way to set the permissions only on a root folder and then let the subfolders inherrit these permissions?
