I'm trying to move contacts from my outlook 2010 client to a public folders and it gives me a message: Cannot copy the items. You don't have permissions to create an entry in this folder. Right click the folder, and then click properties to check you permissions for the folder. See the folder owner or your administrator to change your permissions"

How do i fix this?

Thank You guys for your prompt response.

Right click on the PF folder .... go to permissions tab add user and give Owner rights and OK ..... wait for 5 minutes and try :)

Is it possible the public folder is on a server you do not administer?  We use varying levels of admins, maybe something like that is what you are facing?

or

have you tried logging directly onto the server as "administrator" to move the file...?  

or

Did another admin change your rights?

To add to Rancy's comment, It needs to be done through outlook.  You'll need to identify who is the owner, or log on as the Administrator into outlook to administer the permissions.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I had to do this locally on user PC. User was the owner of the public folder. User didn't know.
Thank You guys.

User was the owner of PF. Had to research this online and found out how to see who was owner on outlook.
