  • Active Directory User Account - Mailbox Rights

    I have an employee who needs access to a User Account in Active Directory that is used to manage departmental emails. This employee happens to be a part of a Security Group. The Security Group has over 90 members and I want to give the whole groups Mailbox Rights to the User account, but when I try it, it doesn't give the employee the rights. What I ended up having to do was add the employee's User account to the User account I want her to have Mailbox Rights to. Is there any reason why I can't give the Security Group Mailbox Rights to the User Account?

    When you say "but when I try it, it doesn't give the employee the rights" what do you mean? Do they get an error?
    You don't explain how you assigned permissions but you should be able to use ADUC Exchange Advanced Tab to asign the group permissions then wait for everything to sync and then restart the machine the users are using to test. If you get errors that would be helpful.

    Have you seen these too?

      That step is critical - Exchange caches the permisions and refreshes the cache evrey few hours. If you can't wait that long, then you can restart the Information Store to force a refresh - naturally do this out of hours though.
