Grant permission to public folder and subfolders


How to grant permission to public folder and subfolders.

One frustration Exchange admins experience when trying to use the public folder management console is having to manually set the permissions on each individual public folder instead of being able to set it at a parent folder then have the permissions propagate to child items. Thankfully the Exchange Management Shell allows us a way to do this. To set the permissions on a public folder and it’s subfolders open the Exchange Management Shell and use the following powershell command:

Get-PublicFolder –Identity “publicfolderroot” –Recurse | Add-PublicFolderClientPermission –User username –AccessRights PublishingEditor
