Hi,

I've numerous public task lists, calendars etc on my connect mail server. I want to set up an archive which only the admin can see so they can manually archive entries. However, the group permissions seem to be inherited throughout all the calendars and aren't editable.

How would I set up a folder that can only be seen by admins? I've tried to remove the staff group from the sub folder but it won't let me, seemly as it's inherited.

That is working for me. Which version of Kerio Connect are you using? How are you trying to set permissions?

Latest version, 7.1.4 build 2985

So if I add the 'allstaff' group to the top level of PUBLIC FOLDERS then all is grand, but I can't remove that group from any of the sub folders as it's permission is inherited. There isn't a group with 'no access' level permissions, otherwise that might be a solution.

OK, I could reproduce this. It is only a problem if you set the right on the top level folder (called Public Folders). As soon as I add a group on a folder directly below the top level folder, I can remove the group on any folder that is below that folder.

So would it be possible for you to set the rights on the folder just below the top level folders? We have it setup like this

Public Folders
  |- Company name <== set access rights here
       |- Department 1
       |- Department 2
       |- Department 3

oooh - gotcha. I may give that a go. My problem is that if I remove the group from the Public folders, none of the members have access to any subfolders.

So If I had a group called ALL STAFF, add them to the public folders. Then create another group, and add them to COMPANY NAME?

Will that work?

Cheers

The answer is no, it seems to be all or nothing. I have to have a group added to the top level PUBLIC FOLDERS for users to gain access to sub folders. Very frustrating.

Also - I notice the web version works ok with this method, but not the version in my clients outlook 2003. Could this be an issue with outlook 2003?

That works for us, we have it setup like this:

Public folder: Admin<_at_>yourcompany.tld = Administrator
Company name: Admin<_at_>yourcompany.tld = Administrator, GroupAll = Reader
Department1: Admin<_at_>yourcompany.tld = Administrator, Group1 = Reader
Department2: Admin<_at_>yourcompany.tld = Administrator, Group2 = Reader
Department3: Admin<_at_>yourcompany.tld = Administrator, Group3 = Reader

That results in that members of GroupAll have access to "Company name" but not to Department1/2/3. You don't need to have GroupAll on the top level folder ("Public folder").
