    Public Folder Unread flagging

    On Exchange 2003 I have set up a Pulic Folder

    Conversations and topics are flagged as unread, and, even if I right click and mark them as read, they still appear as unread. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    My assumption was that the mechanism was like a newsfeed with individual marking of read messages so that it was useful to the user - am I missing something obvious here?

    Are you sure you have appropriate permissions to modify entries?

    No I'm not sure - but on the other hand I was testing this as a domain administrator and had set all users to have fairly serious rights such as author as well s don't think that is likely.

    My first question is - would you expect it to keep individual read attributes for each user?

    Yes, rights are assigned to individuals. In the Exchange Administrator you should be able see the permissions for the folder although an author should be sufficient to change entries.

    I am a lowly user of our corporate Exchange servers, but I certainly get to mark things in public folders as read, which only seems to affect me.

    Thanks Stuart - that's what I thought should be happening - it means I have a little more digging to do.
