  I am running Exchange Server 2000 SP3; the server is the result of a
migration that was carried out just over a year ago. The Public Folders
have mass security problems.

  If I, as an administrator from Outlook, create a new Public folder and
give "John Doe" Author permission, leaving Default and Anonymous
permissions to none no one has the permission to do anything in that
public folder. I am forced to give "Default" the same level of access
that I want John to have. This also leaves the Public Folder open to
others at the same access level. This problem affects the entire Public
Folder hierarchy. 

  It seems that Default is the only object that can be given permission
to interact with the Folders. HELP!! 

  Any help would be appreciated! I am seriously thinking of exporting
all data from the public folders, deleting the public folder store and
starting from scratch. Any suggestions?
