Exchange 07 – Managing Public Folder permissions

Unfortunately with Exchange 07, there is no longer a GUI to add/remove user permissions to Public Folders. Luckily though, you can dip your hands into some more Powershell! (EMS version, of course)

  • Adding permissions

Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity <Name_of_folder> -AccessRights <Permission_Assigning> -User <User_Name>

To remove any permissions added just replace “Add” with “Remove” at the beginning of the command.

There are multiple “Access Rights” values you can set to this command.  The following are those values:

  • ReadItems – The user has the right to read items within the specified public folder.
  • CreateItems – The user has the right to create items within the specified public folder and send e-mail messages to the public folder if it is mail-enabled.
  • EditOwnedItems – The user has the right to edit the items that the user owns in the specified public folder.
  • DeleteOwnedItems – The user has the right to delete items that the user owns in the specified public folder.
  • EditAllItems – The user has the right to edit all items in the specified public folder.
  • DeleteAllItems – The user has the right to delete all items in the specified public folder.
  • CreateSubfolders – The user has the right to create subfolders in the specified public folder.
  • FolderOwner – The user is the owner of the specified public folder. The user has the right to view and move the public folder, create subfolders, and set permissions for the      folder. The user cannot read items, edit items, delete items, or create items.
  • FolderContact – The user is the contact for the specified public folder.
  • FolderVisible – The user can view the specified public folder, but cannot read or edit items within the specified public folder.
