How have you assigned permissions for the public folders?

Thanks Greg. It's now been over 40 minutes since the changes were
made.  I have logged off the user and logged back in several times on
different computers.

Now that I have been thinking about it more... If a user was accessing
their mailbox (full permission) through Oulook from separate trusted
forest, do the public folder permissions not apply because the user
from a different forest is not in the GAL?

For example, if you you adjust the Client Permissions on a public
folder, your list of available users comes from the GAL. Well, our
users are in a separate forest while logged into Windows, and their
Exchange account mailbox permissions (rights) have their user account
from the other trusted forest setup for full mailbox access and read
permissions. And obviously this separate account is not listed in the
Exchange GAL.

So the next question is: If a user in a separate trusted forest has
been granted full mailbox access and read permissions to an Exchange
account (the Mailbox Rights section), will they inherit the public
folder permissions from the Exchange account?

Thank you,
