Exchange Public Folders – Changing A Root And Subfolder Permissions

One of our clients hired on a new person to work the front desk. This position involves managing the firm’s time data in Caseware Time.

Caseware Time, a proprietary time/billing management application, stores all of its shared data in an Exchange Public Folder.

So, we needed to add the new username and publish Owner permissions to the Today root folder and all subfolders under it.

To do this, we open the base folder’s properties in the Exchange System Management console. We add the username and set Owner permissions for it.

From there, we open PFDavAdmin (download page) and connect to the Public Folder store.

We then right click on the root Today folder and click Propagate Folder ACEs.

Tick the new username and make sure the Add/Replace radio button is chosen. Then, click OK and watch the changes being made:


Once done, the user will now have the necessary permissions to the folder.
