  • viewing users mailboxes in OWA

    We have been trying and trying, and nothing is working.. We are admins, trying to view users mailboxes, and everything we find online isn't working. We have tried using this command:

    Get-MailboxDatabase -identity "SERVERNAME\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database" | Add-ADPermission -user administrator -AccessRights FullAccess

    We have tried:

    Add-ADPermission -Identity "Mailbox Database" -user administrator -AccessRights FullAccess

    Add-MailboxPermission -Identity "Mailbox Database" -user administrator -AccessRights FullAccess

    The only thing that we are finding that works is to go to each mailbox in the management console and add it from there.

    Does anyone know a way that works?

    Ok, so a little update... I was able to get mailbox access in OWA, thanks to a website I found (

    He has a powershell script that works great for adding permissions to mailboxes.

    However, make sure you're using the right User for access.. we gave "domain admins" full access, and then tried removing them. The remove-MailboxPermission doesn't work, or at least, not the way we thought it did.

    so we are currently trying to remove the permissions we added to domain admins, so that we can, instead of using "domain admins", use "exchange admins".
