Granting Admin Access to Mail Contacts, Exchange 2010 sp1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am a fairly small company where I do most of the work that required admin access.  However I want to provide one user the ability to add / edit "Mail Contacts" in Exchange 2010 sp1.  But I don't want her to access anything else exchange related. 

    She already has access to the appropriate OUs, as I had this working with Exchange 2003.  But I've upgraded to 2010 and see that now the contacts must be managed from Exchange Management. 

    I'm not seeing an ability to install only tools for the "mail contact" subset of "Recipient Config.", so I'm assuming this user would need access to the management tools as a whole, but only have permissions that would allow access to these mail contacts. 

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks
    Tim

  • Hi, 

    I would say give the user Recipient Management rights.

  • I agree with Michael - you might also consider having that user download the EMC to their local workstation to ensure they do not have the additional access login privileges to the server provides.

    It's also good practice to management any servers on the local workstation instead of logging on to the server to manage it in there. I have seen admins accidentally reboot servers or delete something that it was not suppose to be deleted etc.
