Managing Public Folders

Control Access to the Folder

By default, all users have permission to read messages in a public folder. You can change permissions for all users or create different permissions for specific users.

To set permissions for the public folder:

  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.
  4. Right-click a folder, and then click Properties.
  5. On the Permissions tab, click Folder Rights.
  6. To create different permissions for specific users, click Add.
  7. Select a user, and then click Add. Repeat this step for all users that you want to add, and then click OK.
  8. Under Name, select the Allow or Deny check box to grant or deny each user access to the available options.
