Exchange 2010 public folders and permission

We have folders that were already setup and I added a new user to Exchange and assigned him permissions to folders as needed. There are 3 that WILL NOT let him see below the parent folder. I have removed and added back, 3 times with no change.

What am I missing?

Is he able to see the parent folder?

Is he part of any other group which has reviewer access to those PFs?

imkottees: He can see the parent w/content and SEE the subfolders, just not content. He has Editor permissions.

this might sound silly but you can give a try.

remove permissions from subfolder, then go to EMC--> Public Folder console --> right click parent public folder --> permissions--> give access to those users --> choose inherit permissions to subfolders--> finish --> check after few minutes.

I did for the one user, but I really don't want to remove EVERYONE, this was unfortunately setup without groups

no that is the one I created this question for

for kicks, I added myself, which I did not have access and I got access immediately. Now I see what all the other users assigned there see.

Did you tried giving the access from EMS

Get-PublicFolder "\PFIdentityPath" -Recurse |Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -User "UserName" -AccessRights "AccessType"

Something like-


Get-PublicFolder "\MyTestPF\PublicFodler1" -Recurse |Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -User "TestUser1" -AccessRights "Editor"

preferably run from the server hosting the public folder database.

Can you also check the current access part by running..

Get-PublicFolder "\PFIdentityPath" -Recurse |Get-PublicFolderClientPermission

.. and see if the granted access does exists for the users.

imkottees: I had been removing from the Parent folder then, just adding it back, which had no affect. Today I removed permissions from Sub-filders back to Parent, then added back and this worked. I don't understand why but at least it is fixed.

Thank you
