    Hello,

    Use the following command to see whether the Full Access Permission is applied:

    Get-Mailbox -Server “ServerName” |Get-mailbox |Get-MailboxPermission |where {($_.AccessRights -eq "FullAccess") -and ($_.IsInherited -eq $false)}

    Thanks,

    Simon

  • Did you wait two hours?  It can take that long for mailbox rights changes to propagate to the store.

  • Hi thanks for reply and suggestion.

    yes I did, I thought it would take some time to propagate as you say, I have just checked again, no change.

    Any other suggestions?

    Could it be somthing to do with this users rights? Although when I created the user I did the same things as I did for another user.

    Maybe I will use the cmd as per that page and see if that works.

    Cheers

    Hi Ed,

    What I did was the following, refer picture below. Using MS Exchange Console, I clicked on receiptant configuartion, then on user office which is the email I am trying to give user Randall access to, I added Randall as you can see from picture and click on manage and then under user Randall I added Office, by clicking on manage. Each time I clicked on manage, Console came up with green ticks and the script I assume it is looked correct.

    What I am trying acheive is to give user Randall when he logs into our server via Remote Desktop as other users Gordon and myself do, access to Office's inbox so he can check for new emails etc.

    Have a missed something? Is there something extra I must do considering Remote desktop users log into our server which as I have said in earlier posts is running TS and Hyper V.  i.e remote and local RD users log into our virtual driver which has internal IP 192.168.2.3 this has Windows R2 installed and that is on top physcial drive which is 192.168.2.2, this has SBS 2008 installed, thanks Phil

    on starter,

    Hi Simon thanks for reply, isn't it enough to do as per post above and picture? do I also have to run this command you have above?

    I understand how to run commands although I am rusty with them, too use to Windows I guess, Servername I am assuming would be what we call it which is pmanet, mailbox is office, mail box permissions is one I want to add? Then do I do the rest as per how you have it? 

    I do use someone to help us with our server, but for something this basic, well I thought it was, I didn't think I would need to contact him, as best I learn myself.

  • To which mailbox are you granting these rights?  Okay, after he does that, what does Randall do to connect to the mailbox you granted rights, and what happens?

  • Hi, he logs into the Terminal Server 192.168.2.3, of course via internet it is our static IP that is number he uses, using Remote desktop, and opens Outlook.

    But unlike myself and Gordon he cannot see the inbox of office.

    Now he can open other users inbox as I am sure you know what I mean, by right clicking on his name in outlook and then selecting open other users folder, but that is not what I am trying to do.

    Cheers

    ps I know this is off this topic, but considering the setup we have, is it possible at all to get the Virtual drive to talk to physical hardware on the physical drive, e.g a Fax modem, Say someone wants to fax something off our server via fax modem connected to the server's box.

  • You need to add the mailbox. In outlook, tools menu, account settings, more options, advanced tab, and add the mailbox. Exchange 2007 doesnt automatically populate (add the secondary) as it does with 2010.

    Hi James thanks for reply,
    That is interesting what you say about Exchange 2007, as I just checked my other two users who do have access to this office inbox and there has been no account set up under outlook under their user name / log in.

    I suspect my IT support person ( who is away currently and hence one of reasons I am trying to do myself) must have one further steo invloved and I susepect it is to do with the Virtual Drive running 2008r2 on top of Phyiscal drive, although what that might be I do not know, I will have to keep researching, thanks to all who tried to help.  Cheers Phil

    Whether or not Exchange is virtualized (I think that is what you mean by Virtual Drive) with ESXi, Hyper-V or Citrix, that will have no effect on Full Access or Send As permissions. I would not waste too much time looking for a solution at that level.

    PMANET is the name of your domain (Active Directory).

    To find the name of your server, open the EMS or command prompt - cmd.exe in the run box -  and type "hostname" - without quotes!

    You put that where "ServerName" is.

    Note that you can copy and paste the command quoted into the EMS - no need to retype. Nothing else to add.

    And that command only shows permissions. It will not change anything.

    Okay, thanks, I will look at this again, I will try the cmd as suggested by James ands see if that works. thanks

    Thanks Simon, oh yes EMS, not a DOs prompt, what was I thinking!  I give it a go and report back, appreciate the help form everyone.
