This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to add permissions for users of client programs (such as Microsoft Outlook) to access and modify public folder content. When adding these permissions, you can either use predefined permission roles (which consist of specific access rights) or you can customize permissions by manually applying the available access rights. To specify the permissions for the client user, you can use the Add-PublicFolderClientPermission cmdlet or the AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 user management script.
