Can you prevent a sub folder in outlook from being deleted in outlook 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a mailbox setup that multiple users have added to their outlook profile. Is there any way to rescrict permissions so that they cannot delete sub folders? I seem to run into this once in a while where someone accidentally deletes a folder and then we lose it and I can usually recover it from backups, but that gets lengthy sometimes.

    I would like for users to be able to do everything, but move/delete folders. Any way to do this? We are using outlook 2010/2013 and have exchange 2013.

    Thanks,

    Kody

  • No, if the folder is in the primary mailbox, the owner can do anything with that mailbox.

    If this is for a delegate store, you would need to modify the folder permissions using either

    1. Extended MAPI (C++ or Delphi) - open the PR_ACL_TABLE property. This is what you see on the Permissions tab of the folder properties dialog. You can see the raw data in OutlookSpy (click iMAPIFolder, go to the PR_ACL_TABLE tab).

    2. Use Redemption (any language) - it exposes RDOFolder.ACL collection.

  • Hello Kody,

    It seems you need to change the folder permissions.

    Anyway, the Outlook object model doesn't provide anything for this. I'd suggest Exchange server specialists instead.
