I'm trying to set up appropriate permissions to allow a group of users to
access another user's Exchange folder tree. I'm not having much luck ...
For starters, since incoming email to this user's box is to be redirected to
these other users, I created a distribution group for this purpose and set
up the Exchange redirect options in ADUC. No problem there.
However, when I tried to set up folder permissions through the user's
Outlook, this group was nowhere to be found. This, even after manually
updating the recipient lists through ESM AND telling Outlook to re-download
the GAL. All the other distribution groups -- set up identically to the one
I just created -- show up. But no number of manual update requests is
getting Outlook to see this new group. How do I remedy this?
Problem #2: This particular user's mail store has close to 90 folders and
subfolders. I tried to give just one user read-only access to the mailbox
root; the user in question was able to open the mailbox root, but nothing
showed up below it. I then gave the user read-only access to the dozen or so
root-level folders; the user now could see the root-level folders, but not
the subfolders below them. Does this mean I have to manually add permissions
to EVERY folder, subfolder, sub-subfolder, sub-sub-subfolder in that mail
store? Is there an easier way to do this?
