Editing Exchange Server public folder permissions

Find out how to edit permissions on Microsoft Exchange Server public folders using Exchange System Manager (ESM).

We have an Exchange Server public folder that does not have Administrators as the owner/editor. I need to grant other users permissions to this Exchange public folder. However, the creator of this public folder only gave permissions to one user. Consequently, I can not edit the permissions, even if I log on as system administrator. How can I grant domain administrators permissions to this Exchange public folder?
For starters, make sure you're using Exchange System Manager (ESM) to make these edits and not Microsoft Outlook. (I'm making assumptions about the version of Exchange Server you're running.) Then, follow Microsoft's directions on how to reset permissions on Exchange Server public folders.

If that doesn't work, please write back in and provide more details about your issue.
