  • Public Folder visible to all

    Hi,

    I have just created a Public folder and selected a Managers OU from AD.
    But all the users can access the public folder from their Outlook.

    Under the folder permissions I have granted Administrator with Full Owner rights only.

    How can give read only access to managers group and folder visible=false to all other users and any OU available.

    You need to set "Default" to None.
    Then add the mail enabled group to the list.

    Make sure that you are changing the permissions either through Outlook or using Client Permissions.

    Active Directory permissions do not apply to Public Folders visibility - if you have been changing AD permissions then you have probably broken the folder functionality and you could recreate the folder.

    Simon.

      Get-PublicFolder -Recurse | Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -User Default -AccessRights None

      Is this command the right to make the folder invisible to all

        That command would make all public folders hidden unless the folder has additional permissions set. However it will not work with the Default permission because it already exists.

        Default is the permission the user gets if they aren't listed in any other way (directly or as a member of a group) but highest permissions wins. So if Default was set to Owner, then everyone would have Owner permissions, even if listed as Reviewer.

        You can set the permissions either through Outlook, if you are an owner, or through EMS or through the public folder console (Exchange 2010).
        As Default already exists, you cannot add it, you have to modify it:

        Set-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\Folder\SubFolder" -User Default -AccessRights None

        You need to include the full path to the folder, start with a \.

            OK Correct method is to remove the permission only, does need to set to None

            To remove the Access Rights for Default user:
            Remove-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\ITPF" -User Default

            This will make it "None"
