Set / Change permission for all public folder children and SBS 2011

We have just created a new public folder database and copied over about 100 folders, via a 3rd party tool in outlook and sync'd it to the new public folder database on SBS 2011.

My question is, how do you change / setup permissions on all of the folders at one time?  We pretty much want to allow publishing editor permissions on all 100 folders for specified users; however when I go into ESM under Default Public Folders, it only allows me to update the top level.  When I do try and update the top level permissions to include the users I want to have publishing editor permissions and then check Outlook...I only see the permissions applied to the top folder, and none of the children.

How do you propagate these permission settings to all the children folders in the public folder database?  Hopefully not 1 by 1 I take it =) Thanks

Anyone know how I may do this? I looked all over ESM and still do not see any way to selectively choose all 100+ public folders, and allow for Publishing Editors permissions for certain users on them..only top level, which doesn't propagate down.  I'm hoping there is an easy way to do this to all folders at once...as opposed to updating the permissions 1 by 1 via outlook,  Thanks
