  • Access user mail box

    Hello Team,

    Which group should I give myself in AD in order to gain full access to user mailbox? I gave myself almost all the exchange security group, but it still won't work. I have to go into user profile and ad myself in manually.

    Thanks,
    HN

        Hi,

        you can run the following command to get Full access on user's mailbox

        Add-MailboxPermission -Identity john -User Admin01 -AccessRights FullAccess

        Get-mailbox | Add-MailboxPermission -User Admin01 -AccessRights FullAccess

        It will give Admin01 full access to all mailbox users
        Thanks & Regards

          Note that those are Powershell commands, you can't run them at the Command Prompt.

            There are no permissions or roles that will provide access to all mailboxes by default, which is a good thing. You have to grant full mailbox permissions on each account.

            However I am very much of the opinion that blanket access to all mailboxes is not something that any Exchange administrator worthy of the job requires to manage the mailboxes or the server. It is not something I have nor have asked for. If i need to access a mailbox I grant the permissions on demand. That change of permission is then logged. When finished, I then remove that same permission, again it is logged.

            When there is the fallout because email has been deleted, something leaks etc, I can then prove that it wasn't me because I didn't have the permission.

            Simon.

              Good point. If you are going to do this, you must ensure that it is reflected by your corporate IT policy and is approved by HR, legal (if you have a legal department) and at board level.
