We have provisioned MySites for users and created a new permission level according to our company requirements, wherein the Mysite is visible only to the MySite owners. Now, from whichever page we are in the application when we click on the name of a user of the application, it takes us to their profile page. However, now we notice that, for all those users for whom MySite is provisioned, it shows an "Access Denied" error. I am new to SharePoint and don't know if this is because of the permissions of MySite.
What I want to implement is that MySites should be accessible only to the owners of the MySite but everyone's profile page must be visible to everyone else. Any help on this will be very helpful.
Thanks in advance. :)
