Note this refers to folders in an Exchange account and requires the "Exchange Operations" plugin be enabled.

I'm slightly seeing different behavior.  Either both File -> Permissions... and the right-click menu work, or they both don't.  But it seems to vary from folder to folder.  Don't see a pattern yet.

This is probably worth taking a look at.  Couple be a simple fix to an irritating bug.  Proposing it for 5.4.
