Add Permissions for Client Users to Access Public Folder Content

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

When adding client permissions, you can either use predefined permission roles (which consist of specific access rights) or you can customize permissions by manually applying the available access rights. To specify the permissions for the client user, you can use the Add-PublicFolderClientPermission cmdlet or the AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 user management script.

If a client user already has a specific access right to a public folder, you can't add the same access right again. Therefore, if you use the AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 script, and the user already has one of the access rights that you're trying to grant, a warning will appear stating that the current access rights will be removed before new access rights are granted.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Public folder client permissions" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.
