Are admin credentials required for Public Folder migration?
Yes. In order to properly migrate Public Folders, admin credentials are required for both the Source and the Destination.
At the Source:
- Read-only access to all Public Folders is required.
At the Destination:
ADMIN privileges are required for the migrating "admin" account so
that all fields can be set at the Destination.
Ownership of Public Folders are required on the Destination so
that new subfolders can be created.

Note: Once you have created an account with administrative credentials, you will also need to set full permissions for Public Folders explicitly for the administrator.
