  • Correct permissions to run EXMERGE

    Hi all

    I have spent the last hour trying to export my own mailbox using exmerge.

    When i do it as myself it says it cant get a list of mailboxes from the server. When i do it as the domain admin it gets the mailbox list but then cant export the mailbox stating not correct permissions.

    So i created a user called exmereg and gave it exchange enterprise and exchange domain server group membership, schema admin membership and delegated full exchange admin rights using the delegate control in the exchange manager... but still no joy.. im in a muddle now!

    What are the correct permissions to use exmerge!!??

    Many thanks!

      Tonyyeb, to use EXMERGE you must have RECEIVE AS permissions on all mailboxes in the store. Delegating the default FULL CONTROL permissions to someone does NOT give him RECEIVE AS, and if you dig in you'll notice that in fact this permission is denied. Add it manually a s ALLOW and you're set.

        Cheers Daniel, i'm scared about editing mailbox permissions. Should i untick the inherrit permissions and 'Copy' when asked then make the changes? Should i do this at server level, organisation level, store level etc?

        I only want to do one mailbox store at the moment.

          If you only want to do it for one mbx, then grant yourself FULL MBX RIGHTS at the user level in DSA.MSC.

          Actually, why don't you read this:
