If you want to give a Permission for a User to Create a Root PF folder
RBAC doesn’t have that option , so we got to give that manually in Active Directory
Lets say am using OWA to Create Public Folder (PF)
Create New Folder – > Mail folder
You will end up with this Error while Creating Public Folders
Error : You don’t have permission to Perform this action
Logon to Adsiedit.msc
- Click Start, Run, Type ADSIEdit.msc
- Expand the following items:Configuration Container
- CN=Folder Hierarchies
- Right Click on CN=Public Folders – Properties
Click on ADD – Type the User you want to add – Click ok
Create Public Folder “Allow”
Create Top level Public Folder “Allow”
Apply & ok
Now User able to Create Top Level Public Folder (Root Public Folder Tree)
Hi! Great post.
I’m facing a different problem with public folders, and i hope you could help me. I would like users to be able to see a public folders and list contents (Reviewer), but disable the option to “Copy Folder” that appears in OWA. Through Outlook this option is disabled, but in OWA is permitted.
Have you ever encountered this problem?
Thank you in advance,
I don’t think we can restrict that. ADRMS might have a solution for that !

I tried the settings suggested by you, it works as a charm, but my question is once this setting is in place what about mail enabled public folder does mail enabled public folder will accept messages from my domain as well as external domain.
how this setting will be affected for mail enalbled public folder mail flow.
Its not going to affect any function of Mail Enabled Public Folders.
It will work without any issues. It should accept messages from internal and External.
Tks very much
