I need to be concise here, but still get my situation across. I have a folder inside Public Folders which I will call Org1, where I want to put all the departments specific folders, we will call them Dep1 Dep2 Dep3 etc. So it looks like Public Folders/Org1/Dep1.. Dep2.. Dep3 etc.

Obviously, at the Public Folders level the authusers has read only permissions. Therefore so do all the folders under that. But I do not WANT Dep1 to see Dep2 info. In fact I don't want Dep1 to see Dep2 folder at all! You would think I could just remove the authuser from all the department folders, and replace it with a group containing users for the respective departments, but nay! I do not get to do that! I cannot remove propagated permissions from sub-folders.

Perhaps I can remove authusers from the root Public Folders, and put each department's group at the top, and then remove them at a lower level, but nay again! NO permissions that are propagating can be removed at a lower level! And it's not clear that removing authusers from the root will not cut off access to all users except administrators. It's looking ugly at this point.

But I suppose I am going to have to give it a try. Cover me I am going in!

I think this is a bug, I will submit it as one.
