Public Folder Exchange 2007 Query RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    In my Test Lab, i have created a public folder in exchange server 2007 as an administrator. Once i created i found the administrator as a owner. then i logged in to the outlook 2007 as normal user where i can able to see the post in the newly created publcfolder, i can able to delete the post from the public folder.

    Is it by design for anonymous.??

    or i need to re itrate client level PF permission to users who need the access other than administrator

  • If you access the Public Folder from a mailbox within the same Exchange Organization you're not Anonymous. You access the Folder with the same credentials as the mailbox in your Outlook profile.

    By default no permissions are given to any unspecified users when creating a Public Folder. You need to explicitly give permissions with Add-PublicFolderClientPermission

  • Hi Jesper

     

    yes. i created a new Public Folder in Exchange Server 2007 under the root as a exchhage administrator.

    i checked the below command

    Get-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\test" -user administrator |fl


    Identity     : \test
    User         : abc.com/Users/Administrator
    AccessRights : {Owner}

     

    gave  the same command for different user called dr, no result  it come like below

    Get-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\test" -user dr  |fl


    [PS] C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.abc>Get-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\test" -user dr |fl
    [PS] C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.abc>

    I logged in to the clinet machine under the user name DR and open the outlook 2007 -- > then Public Folder am able to post the new items in the TEST public folder . and able to delete some post inside the public folder

    how come the user DR can access this public folder without any permission.

  • I just had to try this out in my home lab and was I in for a surprise. Exchange by default gives a lot more permissions than I thought. If you run Get-PublicFolderClientPermissions "\test" you'll get all permissions on that folder and I´m guessing Default is set to Author, right?!

    So, you'll need to modify it to your needs - Configuring Public Folder Permissions
