  • Public folder permissions - "Delete - None" still allows delete own items.

    On Exchange 2013, I issued the powershell command Add-PublicFolderClientPermission and I used the -AccessRights parameter to provide a specific user with only the following access rights:

    ReadItems, CreateItems, CreateSubfolders

    That worked fine, and I can confirm that in Outlook, when I right click any public folder or subfolder and select Properties then examine the permissions tab, that user has the "Delete items" radio button set to "none" as expected. The above powershell command is part of a script that sets these rights for the entire Public Folder tree and all subfolders.

    However, when the user creates a subfolder he can then delete that subfolder, but I think he should not be able to delete anything, even his own self-created subfolders.

    Is there a way to prevent users from also deleting folders that they created themselves?

    Many thanks
    Best wishes,
