Exchange 2013 – public folder administration tips & tricks part 1.

Hi guys!

after years of just taking from the community (by reading forums, blogs and enthustiastic sites) I decided that time for giving it back has finally come.

My first post will be about simple tricks and tips regarding Exchange 2013 Public folder administration in simple problem – solution form.

Problem = senders from outside of organization cannot send e-mail to your public folder

Solution = Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity “\nameofthepublicfolder” -user anonymous -accessrights createitems line will probably fix it – anonymous users by default doesnt have right to create items in public folder and you have to give it by yourself.

You can achieve the same result by right clicking on public folder in Outlook – Properties – Premission tab, pick Anonymous and give it Contributor rights. Click apply.

Same premission you can assign via ECP – by assigning those premission from admin console.
