3. Import or export permissions against either mailboxes or public folders. This will be a handy option to have the portable different complex level of permission.

Personally speaking, PFDavAdmin is not the best way to manage exchange permissions.

There is a tool called security explorer for exchange that is a much more advanced solution but still easy to use.

I can manage permissions on public folders, administrative groups and storage groups.

I don't normally recommend a lot of products but this one I do.
