Microsoft Exchange 2010 - Public Folder Report - Permissions

Essentially we have a client running Exchange 2010 with about eighty users.  They currently utilize public folders to store data so remote users can access via Outlook over HTTPS.  Another firm was introduced that applied what appears to global permissions to all the folders either from negligence or in error.  Several folders that were locked down to a select few users now have several users that shouldn't have access.  I'd venture a guess and say something was changed on one of the top level folders that propagated down.

My goal for my client is to create a report that showing each folder and their current permissions applied.  This will allow them to go through each folder on the report and scratch off who shouldn't have access.  Checking each of the eight hundred or so folders would be extremely time intensive and I'm trying to avoid that.

Feedback welcome and thank you in advance.

You should be able to use powershell to pull the permissions from public folders.

Use the get-publicFolderClientPermission -identity "\publicfoldername"

You might also be able to use PFDAVadmin as well if to get the info but it will not create a report for you.

Speco1 is correct but if you wanted to list all public folder permissions i will go this route...

Get-PublicFolder -Identity "\" -Recurse | get-publicFolderClientPermission
