Granting permissions to mailboxes in Exchange 2007
An interesting topic came up in mailing list I am on. Administrator is trying ti fougre out how to give a user full access to another user's mailbox. This is done via the Exchange Management Shell. There is no Exchange Management Console interface for doing this. Here is the syntax if I want to give user Jim.McBee permission to the John.Galt mailbox.
Add-MailboxPermission John.Galt -User Jim.McBee -AccessRights FullAccess
You can also grant permission to open or access all of the mailboxes on an entire mailbox database. Let's day I want to give user Auditor permission to the Accounting Mailbox Database (assuming it is uniquely named), here is the syntax:
Add-ADPermission "Accounting Mailbox Database" -User Auditor -ExtendedRights Receive-As
Thanks to Microsoft's Ross Smith for this tidbit of information.
