I've created a public folders mailbox on our new Exchange 2013 server and I can now create public folders and I can see them on network PCs with Outlook 2013.  But when I create a public folder using the Exchange admin web page, how do I specify the folder type.  They are by default mail and post item folders but I want to create some contact type folders and task type folders.  I've checked various documentation on this and found nothing.  If I select the "all public folders" folder in Outlook 2013 I can choose to add a new folder and make it a contact item folder but I'm  always told that I don't have permission to create new folders under the "all public folders" folder even if I'm logged into the workstation as the domain administrator.

Thanks in advance for your help on this.

I usually create folders through Outlook.
You have created a top level folder? You can do that through Exchange, then grant yourself Owner permissions. That will allow you to create sub folders and set the permissions, which you should then be able to do through Outlook.

Don't forget that Exchange caches permissions, so a permission change can take two hours to be effective.
