Can't copy emails from public folder to my own folder?

Hi there,

Server side exch2003sp1 BE & FE servers on w2k3 servers.
On the BE server, created mail enabled public folder to receive emails.

Client side outlook2003sp1 on winxpsp2. Now I would like to copy some of
the emails from this public folder to my own inbox, however it said I don't
have enough access right & check with your system admin, which is myself.

In ESM, at that public folder's properties, permission tab, client
permission, I've the following entries:
default author
administrator owner
anonymous contributor

Wondering what should I do to enable all users access right to copy emails
from this public folder to their own inbox?

Many thanks!

What permission rights do you see when you check the permissions tab
of that folder via Outlook?

Hi Andy,

My permission is 'author' with the following box checked & dimmed:
create items, read items, folder visible, edit items own, delete items own

Should you need more info, I'm available to further discuss.
Thanks in advance for your help!

So, you cant copy any emails or just the ones you didnt create? Can
you create and modify items in the pf? Are you able to add the folder
to your favorites in Outlook?

well, then give yourself the necessary rights :)
or, see if you can make a copy of a message you havent created within
that same folder ( rather than to your inbox) and see if that gives
you ownership rights over the new item which should then allow you to
copy it to your mailbox..
