Multi Tenant public folder primary mailbox creation - auto-discover warning. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here is the background.

    2013 running a primary domain (contoso)

    multiple tenants (microsoft) (Lenovo) (Dell) all setup with Custom Attributes that keep them separate. with unique EAP's GAL's etc 

    I am trying to now implement Public Folders. 2013 is somewhat different to what i have experience with in 2k7/ 2k10

    As i understand it, i need to have a Primary Public Folder Mailbox (in this case Contoso_Public) and then secondary Public Folder Mailboxes for each tenant (Microsoft_Public, Dell_Public and Lenovo_Public)

    My issue lies in when i create the primary Public Folder Mailbox, all tenants are prompted with an Autodiscover record for contoso_public@contoso.com in outlook.. "Allow or Deny"
    I dont want the tenants to see this as they should only see Microsoft_Public or Dell_Public.

    I cant use get-mailbox | where {$_.customattribute1 -eq "Dell"} | set-mailbox -DefaultPublicFolderMailbox "Dell_Public" for example until the Public folder Mailbox has been created..
    But i cant create the PFMailbox without the Autodiscover for contoso_Public appearing for ALL users on the Exchange box.

    What am i missing here?

    Is there a way to create a PFMailbox with permissions during creation so that all users aren't prompted for the Autodiscover of a PFMailbox they wont ever have access to?
