Exchange 2007 Public Folder Administration

As everyone knows that managing Public Folder in Exchange 2007 is nont easy. Few of our implemented customer requested for some help. Here it is. We would like to share on a tool, which is available from Microsoft for FREE - PFDAVAdmin. This tool is already available since Exchange 2003.

This Exchange Server tool can use to perform several tasks related to public folder management:

  • Modify folder permissions on folders in the MAPI tree by using an interface similar to ESM on Exchange 2000/2003 which is not avail in E2007 prior SP1.
  • Add, modify and remove ACEs
  • Export and import folder permissions on public folders and mailboxes - this can be useful for some checking during maintenance.
  • Export and import replica lists.
  • Look for and remove item-level permissions in bulk.
  • Exceed the limits imposed by the ESM user interface for values on the Limits tab.
  • Display and modify folder properties in bulk.
  • Modify the permissions of the Calendar folder in bulk.

Interesting? However, just a note. When Exchange 2007 SP1 is out, you may no need to think about this tool :) Do visit OCS 2007 launch this month. There is a session on Exchange 2007 SP1. However, in this article, we would like to share about the tool:

When you lauch this tool, the below window will prompt. Key-in your Exchange Server and GC server name.

You will then be able to see the PF hierarchie. And there you go, performing the feature mentioned above.

As for public folders security management there is security explorer for exchange that is a great solution for managing exchange permissions in the most intuitive way by showing every object's permissions in a tree view.

It includes powerful abilities for managing permissions on public folders like calendar, inbox and contacts, permissions backup and cloning.

WinPST Share Outlook allows your organization to share Microsoft Outlook Calendars, Mails, Contacts, Tasks, Journals and Notes amongst its staff without Microsoft Exchange Server. In addition to sharing users' personal folders with other members of staff, it is possible, using WinPST Share Outlook, to define public shared folders, for example, shared contacts and holiday calendars, which may be made available to any members of staff.
