I have a Exchange 2007 SP3.
With Outlook 2013, I can't  change a rule for a public folder, but with Outlook 2002, I can.

I have the right "Send As" for the public folder:

intranet.MRN.GOUV... INTRANET\LARPI1      False False     Send-As

Try going to the actual server object in the exchange system manager and in the "security" tab change the user account to have send as permissions as well.

In the Public Folder Management Console, I don't have the "Security" tab.PF-Properties.png See the the picture.

Where do you go to see the "Security" tab with Exchange 2007?
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

security tabs in Exchange System Manager that are hidden, so it can be useful to put them visible, for example to establish permissions to all mailboxes to the Backup user, or to do a Exmerge operation. So here come the step’s that you have to take:

1. With regedit access this key:
2. Then create a DWORD called ShowSecurityPage.
3. A value of 1 (Numeric one) means on, with 0 (Zero) means off.
4. Close the Exchange System Manger, then reopen (no need for a reboot).

After this you can right click Administrative Group-> Properties->Security Tab

With regedit, i don't have : HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\ExAdmin

Do I need to create sub ExBPA or ExMFA or Extra the DWORD called ShowSecurityPage?

This is a exchange 2007 niggle, it used to be there in 2003 and earlier versions of exchange

Try and use ADSIedit  to set permissions on that EXC organistaion object.

Thank you, with ADSIedit, I can access the Security tab. As you can see from the picture,:
Security tab

I have the full access and I can not change a rule of public folder with Outlook 2013, but with Outlook 2002, it works.

Do you have an idea?
