In Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server, the value for the PR_ACCESS property that is returned from the Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) PROPFIND method is always MAPI_ACCESS_READ. This value is read-only.


This problem occurs because Read permissions are requested when you use the WebDAV protocol to access items or folders on the Exchange 2000 computer. Therefore, the value for the PR_ACCESS property that is returned is always read-only. The PR_ACCESS property in the WebDAV response will always have a value of 2, or Read, on the property query regardless of the credentials that are used to access the item or the folder.
