When you create a public folder from a client program in Microsoft Exchange Server 5.0 and Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5, default permissions are assigned to the folder. The default permissions are inherited by the subfolders that are created under the new folder. If many public folders have already been created under the All Public Folders hierarchy, you cannot change permissions on all the folders at the same time.
When a public folder is created under the All Public Folders hierarchy and one or more subfolders are created under the new folder, you can use the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator program to change the permissions and other properties on the top-level folder. The changes are propagated to all the folder's subfolders. To propagate permissions to subfolders when public folders are created, follow these steps:
- In the client program, create a top-level folder under the All Public Folders hierarchy.
- Create one or more subfolders under the top-level folder that you created in step 1.
- In the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator program, click the top-level folder.
- On the File menu, click Properties, and then click Client Permissions.
- Change the permissions and other settings that you want for the folder.
- Click Propagate these properties to all folders.
- Click Apply.
- Click to select the Permissions check box, and then click OK two times.
