  • There are several cmdlets in Exchange 2007 that are used to manage and review permissions. For the purposes of granting access to the shared mailbox the cmdlets we are interested in are as follows:
    • Add-MailboxPermission
    • Add-ADPermission
    As their names might suggest, the Add-MailboxPermission cmdlet is used to add permissions to a mailbox. While the Add-ADPermission cmdlet is used to add permissions to an Active Directory object.

  • Hi Al-Jarady,

     

    If you want users can access the shared mailbox, you can just give these user full access permission to that shared mailbox, then these users can access the shared mailbox from OWA or Outlook.
