Public Folder Notifications/Read Receipts RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a client who was recently migrated from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 to now exchange 2013. Public Folders were migrated successfully with minimal hiccups. This week the client is telling me that whenever someone opens a file inside Public Folders, a read receipt is sent to the original owner. Can this be disabled?

    I've tried using the following cmdlet:

    Set-PublicFolder '\<Public Folder Name>' -PerUserReadStateEnabled:$false

    Am I on the right path with this cmdlet or am I missing something?

  • That might work but the real intent is whether an item is marked as read in the folder.  When that's set to true, when multiple users use a folder, each will see items marked as either read or unread based on whether they themselves read it.  When set to false, when one person reads an item it shows as read for all users of the folder.

  • Thanks for the reply Ed. Hopefully this works, I'm waiting to hear back from the client.
