Managing Public Folders

Propagate Folder Settings

This option is available only for parent folders. Properties that you set for a parent folder can be applied to all subfolders. This option applies the settings only to the subfolders. After the parent's settings are applied, you can still change the subfolder's settings. Changing the settings on the subfolders does not affect the settings on the parent or other subfolders.

To apply the parent's settings to all subfolders:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. If administrative groups are displayed, expand Administrative Groups, and then expand the group you want to work with.
  3. In the console tree, expand Folders, and then expand the folder tree containing the folder you want to work with.
  4. Right-click a parent folder, point to All Tasks, and then click Propagate setting.
  5. Select the settings you want to apply to the subfolders.
