Hi all,

I was just wondering if anybody knew of a way to force KMS to propagate permissions throughout a folder hierarchy?

We have just had a couple of users leave, and we have moved their mail stores into public folders to make their historical mail available to replacements and other users; but try as we might, we cannot get the permissions we apply to propagate below the level we apply them at.

Is there a knack to this or a command we can use to force it (chmod -R anybody ,o)

Otherwise I am going to have a VERY boring day tomorrow as they have many many levels of nested mail folders!

Many thanks

I would like to know this as well!

How do we propagate permissions down a public folder straucture?

I don't think there is a procedure to do it.

Since a couple of version ago, Kerio will apply the parent's folder permissions to its child when you create a new (sub)folder. There's no way to apply specific rights automatically on folders that already exist.
