  • Create an account to use with ExMerge on Exchange 2003

    Hi All,

    I know my issue is going to sound noobie, but I really need help in getting the issue resolved.

    How do I create an account with Administrator privileges (but not a part of the Administrators built in security group) so I can extract mailboxes under Exchange 2003? The ExMerge.exe tool by default denies "Receive As" and "Send As" permissions to the Administrator account. So I need to create an account that can log into the server (and have Admin privileges) and extract the mailboxes with ExMerge.

    I've tried following the steps listed in the following articles, but I can't figure out how to create an account that can log into the server....

    This machine has:
    Windows 2003 Enterprise (SP2)
    Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise (SP2)
    (and it is both the mail server and the domain controller)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated......

    Thanks!

    An administrator who isn't an administrator?

    Put a user in the Administrators group, and they become an administrator. Take them out of there, and they're not an administrator anymore.

    Why don't you want to put the user in Administrators?

      The problem has been resolved already. Instead of adding a user into the Administrators group, I allowed the user account to login under the domain controller security policy.

      I couldn't use the administrator account because by default that account does not have "recevie as" and "send as" privileges on the exchange mailboxes.

      thanks for the reply!
