  • Mailboxrights with powershell?

    Hi,
    Helping a customer that runs Windows Server 2008, Exchange Server 2007 SP1.
    The users only user Outlook Webaccess (OWA)

    If the users want to see another persons calendar the support personal have to get the users username/password and hook it up in an Outlook 2007 profile and from there share the calendar.

    The thing is that they don't want to share the whole mailbox, just the calendar.

    This setting that Outlook 2007 stamples in the AD, is it possible to accomplish that in powershell as well?

    Folder permissions are client side. They cannot be set on the server.
    Therefore you are going to need to use Outlook to make the permission changes.

      Ok, and with clientside you mean, the permissions can only be set through Outlook 2007, no attribute gets sampled in the directory?

      But the Outlook client doesn't have to be online for a user to see its shared content right?

        The permissions on the folder are stored in the mailbox, not in AD.
        Once the permissions have been set in Outlook it does not require Outlook to be open to access the data, as it is using server data.
