One of our clients wants some of their public Outlook folders visible to everyone, but none of the sub-folders visible to anyone but a few users. To be more specific, the parent folder has Publishing Editor permissions assigned to 4 users and only visible to all staff. The sub-folders have the same permissions for the 4 users, but must be invisible to all staff. 
There seem to be scripts for doing this, but this client is a law firm and if I blitz their stuff, it's my nuts in a jar. 
I have also tried changing this through Exchange management console, but no joy. Needless to say there are loads of these folders, so doing each one manually is going to take blimmin ages.
