Hi
I have an in house Exchange 2013 Server. There are a number of shared mailboxes which are accessed by a number of different people.
Things have been fine but the permissions on the subfolders are becoming a mess. This is a mailbox in its own right.
I have always used ExFolders before to reassign permissions on a mailbox with large number of subfolders.
However, this no longer work on Exchange 2013.
I have tried various things but nothing seems to force the permissions down through the sub folders.
I have granted users full rights to the mailbox but they are still having problems with sub folders.
Any ideas?

If userB needed access to userA's Inbox\subfolder, you can add via EMS:

Add-MailboxFolderPermission userA:\Inbox\subfolder -User userB -AccessRights reviewer

Open in new window


Adjust the permission level as needed.

As per the technet article...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi
This looks like I have to do folder by folder rather than being able to select a top level folder and force the permissions down. Which is how ExFolders worked.

I can do it folder by folder within outlook so not sure if this helps.

Are they any tools out there to replace ExFolders?

is there no easy tool for this. I see i can write a script but honestly there are so many subfolders it will be a nightmare.

ExFolders was such a great tool is there nothing to replace it even if it costs?

Andy when I began posting my response there were no other comments in this thread, and I was under the impression I was the first to respond.  It was not my intention to hijack your solution.

Well, the Powershell script 'is' an easy way, just not GUI based.
I'd get cracking on that script if I were you.
