Need a step by step solution.
I moved from a 2003 Exchange Server and I used Exmerge to export all boxes out to include public folders. I then imported at the client level. I then mounted the public.pst from my outlook account (Full Admin + Exchange Servers) and copied one by one into the new public folders. I have done this many of times in the past on 2003 exchange. But now I can not right click any of the folders and see "permissions" tab. There is one folder that I have full control of and I have no clue how or why. I was reading on how to take ownership thru powershell, but for some reason - I am just not getting it. I can not delete them either.
So Again I need a Step by Step.

Thanks,

This is what I am doing:

1: Open Powershell

Copy paste

PS C:\Users\Administrator> Get-PublicFolder "\pool" -Recurse | Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -AccessRights Owner -User ABC.com\Lowell

This is what I get:

The term 'Get-PublicFolder' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Chec
k the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

If you have exchange admin permission the you don't have to add owner permission to view permission tab.  "Permissions" Tab for Public Folder Management Console introduced with Exchange 2010 SP1.

So If you are running with Exchange 2010 SP1 or above then the in Public Folder Management Console.. Right click on a public folder and select properties and use "Permissions" Tab to manage client permissions.

You can also use “Manage Public Folder” wizard to perform bulk modifications..

From EMS use Add-PublicFolderClientPermission as mentioned by Rancy or use AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 script. Refer the article for more details..
