Can't add users to a Public Folder

I'm trying to give someone access to an already existing public folder.  I tried following these steps from a site while in the Public Folder Management Console (on Exchange Server 07):

In the console tree, click Toolbox.
In the result pane, double-click Public Folder Management Console.
In the public folder tree of the Public Folder Management Console, expand Default Public Folders, and then click the parent public folder of the public folder you want to configure.
In the result pane, click the public folder you want to configure.
In the action pane, click Manage Settings.

Well, there's no Manage Settings at that step!  Can anyone shed any light.  Thanks.


If I hit "Update Content" I get an error saying cannot start content replication against this public folder.

Best way to assign permissions in Exchange 2007/2010 is with PFDavAdmin. This will give you complete control over the ACL's that are applied to each public folder. You can also propogate permissions to sub folders as well.

Thanks, I'd rather not install new software on our Exchange server if I can avoid it.  Is there a way to do this using the Toolbox in Exchange Management Console?

This software is not designed to be used on the Exchange server. All you need to do is install this on a workstation on your domain.

You have limit access to permissions from the tool box. PFDAVadmin is a Microsoft product to assign public folder permissions.
