  • Permissions in Exchange 2003 server

    I have an exchange 2003 ENT server.
    as an Administrator i need to get into other users mailboxes. (from the server and only in OWA).
    the user administrator has the full allow from the First Administrative Group all the way down, but still when i try to open other user's mailbox i need to insert username (email) and password.

    how can i change it?

    Make sure you have the 'send as' and 'received as' permissions over the users account within exchange 2003 as well.

    By default a full exchange administrator does not have full mailbox access over other users mailboxes in the organisation.

    Hope this helps

      and where will i find those permissions?
      i have the 'send as' and 'receive as' all the way from the server, down through the First Administrative Group all the way down to the mailbox stores (all of them).

        Have you checked on the actual mailbox store. If you have it on the admin groups then you should have it on the mailbox store but just double check.

          You need to use ADSIEDIT and remove the DENY for the SEND AS and RECEIVE AS permissions for the Administrator user and for the Domain Admins and Ent Admins groups (assuming the user you want IS the original administrator). You can do that from the Organization lavel down, or from the Administrative Group down, or from the server object down, or from the store down.

              Look, by default, the Administrator, Domain and Enterprise Admins, they all have DENY on the SEND AS and RECEIVE AS permission from the ORGANIZATION level and downwards.

              That is why they cannot open any other user's mailbox.

              You say you don't have that on your server? Use ADSIEDIT to look.
