Public Folder Permissions in Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2
What do I have to do that a specific security group has full control (all allow checkboxes set) in the Administrative rights tab on all newly created public folders, for example, beneath a specific folder. The only way I could achieve this is by providing the security group full control on the Exchange Org level or by providing full control on the Administrative Group level. However, this also provides permissions on objects the security group should not be allowed to modify. I tried to find this information in the whitepaper Working with Store Permissions in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server and Exchange Server 2003but I was not successful.

you could apply the security permissions on public folders using ESM , or ADSIEDIT. public folders don't really inherit permissions, so it's a problem. you could create the tree , and apply once the required permissions . once . and reapply if any sub-dir is created... that's about it.MCSA Messaging

That is becauseInformation Store has static permission inheritance instead of automatically inherited permissions which is by design behaviour and requires to propagate admin rights on folder when it is being created. XADM: Administrative Rights Are Not Automatically Applied to Public Folder Subfolders http://support.microsoft.com/kb/815916 What you did is kind of workaround but I don't prefer doing it, because as you told it applies to all objects come under org or admin groups.
