Listing Public Folder Permissions with PowerShell

We started off class this morning in a Q&A session.  One of the questions was how to get the public folder permissions on an Exchange Server.  In this example, Exchange Server 2013 is being used.

Get-PublicFolder -Recurse |

    Get-PublicFolderClientPermission

Line 1 Gathers all of the Public folder objects, including subfolders.

Line 2 Gathers the user rights on each public folder and then displays them

FolderName           User                 AccessRights                                                     

----------           ----                 ------------                                                     

IPM_SUBTREE          Default              {Author}                                                         

IPM_SUBTREE          Anonymous            {None}                                                           

Folder1              Default              {Author}                                                         

Folder1              Anonymous            {None}                                                           

Folder2              Default              {Author}                                                         

Folder2              Anonymous            {None}                                                           

FolderA              Default              {Author}                                                         

FolderA              Anonymous            {None}                                                           

Folder1A             Default              {Author}                                                         

Folder1A             Anonymous            {None}                                                           

Folder2A             Default              {Author}                                                         

Folder2A             Anonymous            {None}                                                           

FolderB              Default              {Author}
