Permissions Property Page

Objects inherit permissions from those defined for their containers. Because permissions are inherited, you can set permissions for a group of objects by assigning a user permissions to an object that is higher up in the directory hierarchy. For example, you can give a user permission to administer all types of recipients (mailboxes, distribution lists, custom recipients, and public folders) by assigning the user Administrator permissions on the Recipients container object. For more information about permission inheritance in the directory hierarchy, see Microsoft Exchange Server Concepts and Planning.
