Owner of a Public Folder tries to change permissions they get a message stating "The modified permissions cannot be saved." RRS feed

  • Question

  • When a Owner of a Public Folder tries to change permissions they get a message stating "The modified permissions cannot be saved.". If the Public Folder is moved from the Secondary Hierarchy to the Primary Hierarchy mailbox the owner can then modify the permissions without error. While this is a work around, I would like to get to the actual cause of this issue as I want this to work the way its designed.

    I tried to create a new Public Folder Secondary Hierarchy and moved a Public Folder into this mailbox with no success.

  • I've seen reports of this before, but I don't recall that there was any solution.  You might want to search these forums for similar posts.

  • Thanks Ed...  So far the only "solution" I have found is to move all Public Folders into the Primary Hierarchy, which is more of a work around than a solution.  I will continue to search but if anyone else has any ideas, please feel free to contribute.

  • What if you move one there, then move it back?

  • I tried moving it and moving it back.  Same result.  I even tried creating a new secondary hierarchy mailbox and moving it there.  This produced the same issue as well.

    How does the sync look?

    $info=Get-PublicFolderMailboxDiagnostics <PFMBX>
    $info.syncinfo
