User groups which can use a particular public folder can be added from the Public Folder Properties form by the administrator of the Service Account (Service Account administrators can administrate the Service Account they belong to and the users' details within this Service Account. Additionally, they can administrate public folders within their Service Account)and also by users of this public folder, who have been given the 'Set Permissions' permission for the Department or Service Account. User group(s) of the particular public folder can also be added in a similar way from the OutShare Service Account Administration application.
In order to add user group(s) of a particular public folder, do the following:
Open the Public Folder Properties form and select the preferred public folder on the Tree view.
