This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to view information about the client access permissions to a public folder.

You cannot use the Exchange Management Console to perform this procedure.

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange View-Only Administrator

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

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

  • To view the entire list of the client access permissions for the public folder named Marketing, run the following command:

    Get-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\Marketing" | fl
  • To view the user David's client access permissions to the public folder named East Coast, run the following command:

    Get-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\Marketing\EastCoast" -User David

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Get-PublicFolderClientPermission.
