  • Deleting Public Folders

    hello.

    I am attempting to delete some public folders but running into some issues. In ESM I give appropriate permissions. I make myself the owner and apply the permissions to subfolders, containers, objects... for some reason the subfolders do not inherit the permissions. the only way to remove the folders is to crunch down to a folder with no subfolders and apply permissions individually then delete them. basically i would like to delete the parent folder.

    I am running Exchange 2003

    any ideas??

    Public Folders on inherit on creation.
    For inheritance afterwards you need to use the Permissions tool to propagate the permissions down. Right click on the folder and choose Exchange tasks. The wizard then starts and you can set permissions as required.

    Personally I would set the client permissions to owner, then delete the folders through Outlook. Hardly use ESM for public folder work at all.

      Deleting Public Folders

      thanks for that worked like a charm..

      now i am trying to delete parent folders from a users shared mailbox and getting the same message. Its not public so I cant do it through ESM but the mailbox rights have been granted to full access.
