public folder permissions - 27.Oct.2004 7:33:00 PM

Hello -

I'm trying to setup public folders for my company so each department can view materials only pertaining to them. I tried testing this out, by creating two groups in AD and added members (I am one of them) to it . I then created two public folders as well. In each public folder I set the client permissions to only allow that certain group. To my understanding, I should only see the folder that only allows that certain AD group, not all of them. My logic seems correct, but when I view in my Outlook, it shows both public folders and I can access them both, even though I am a member of just one group. Note: I am Admin, and I did remove access from the public folder client permissions.
Am I doing this correctly? Please shed some light so I can understand it better.

Also, in the future once this is set up properly, I want the folders to allow emails from certain address so that group can only see them. How would I set that up?

Thanks in advance.

Create a security group called Group1.
Create a security group called Group2.

Populate the groups with users. Including yourself.

Create a public folder called Folder1.
Create a public folder called Folder2.

In the permissions of Folder1, add Group1. Set the default permissions to None. Set the anonymous permissions to None. Untick the folder visible box.
Repeat for Folder2 / Group2.

Remember that you can see both as you are the Owner. Recommend that you set Group1 / Group2 as Publishing Authors otherwise they can delete all sorts of bits!

Well, I did as you said and it is still not working properly. Now when I try to access any PF it is denying me. Any idea why it would block me to that PF even though I allowed the group I am a member of, access? I thought I had the logic down for it, but it seems I'm missing something. I've checked my AD profile and it shows that I belong to that group. It seems that when I set up the Client Permissions and adding that group access, it's actually blocking them. Any ideas? thanks in advance.

well I got it to work...sort of. In the Client Permissions, I added a User instead of a Group and that works like a champ. Any ideas why the Group would not allow me access to the PF even though I'm a member of the group?

Does your site employ multiple domains in your AD?
