When you create a public folder in Exchange 2007 and 2010, you can specify how much access others have to that folder by assigning roles. Following are the different roles that you can assign and the permissions that are granted to each role.
Note: For Exchange 2013 and 2016, only administrators can manage public folders for Exchange 2013 and 2016. For more information, see Manage public folders in the control panel for Hosted Exchange 2013 and 2016.
