Exchange Server 2010 users inbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I am not an expert on Exchange Server 2010 so I decided to ask for some help.

    I would like to know if there is a way that I (IT Admin) can have a way to view my users inbox and be able to delete any non company emails or junk mail from their inbox.

    Thank you

  • Yes there is, but in Exchange 2010, your 'admin' account cannot be a part of Domain Admins or any other protected group since Exchange will deny rights to mailboxes for users that are in such groups. You can check by using:

    Import-Module ActiveDirectory
    IF ($(get-ADUser <USERID> -Properties AdminCount).AdminCount -gt 0) {Write-Host "User is in a Protected Administrative Group"}

    But granting a user such access is fairly easy:

    Get-MailboxDatabase | Add-MailboxPermission -user "Domain\<user or group" -AccessRights FullAccess
    Get-MailboxDatabase | Add-MailboxPermission -user "<UPN>" -AccessRights FullAccess
