Managing Public Folders

Control Access to Messages

By default, all users have permissions to read and write content in the public folder. You can change permissions for all users or create different permissions for specific users.

To set access right to messages:

  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 Client Permissions.
  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 grant permissions to.
  8. Under Permissions, use the Roles drop-down list to assign a role to each user, or select individual permissions.
