Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007

Topic Last Modified: 2007-08-27

This topic explains how to remove administrative permissions from users to access a public folder or public folder hierarchy. If you have Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed, you can use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to perform this procedure. If you have the release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Exchange 2007 installed, you must use the Exchange Management Shell.

noteNote:
You cannot use the Remove-PublicFolderAdministrativePermission cmdlet to remove a public folder administrator's access rights. You must use the Remove-ExchangeAdministrator cmdlet or the Organization Configuration node in the Exchange Management Console.

Before you perform the following procedure, you must perform the actions in one of the following sections based on whether you are working with the RTM version of Microsoft Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2007 SP1.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.

Also, before you perform this procedure, be sure to read Configuring Public Folder Permissions.
