auto mapping of shared mailboxes when granting "Full Access Permissions" to an account with NO mailbox RRS feed

  • Question

  • Regarding auto mapping of shared mailboxes (I just can't find enough info on it) - can someone explain this scenario?

    • On Exchange 2010
    • User Account A is created with NO mailbox
    • User Account B & User Account C are created WITH mailboxes

    If I give User Account A "Full Access Permissions" on the mailboxes of User Account B & User Account C (via "Manage Full Access Permissions") - will/should the auto-mapping feature work?

    Trying to clarify - let's say I did the above, and then logged into a machine as User Account A and setup an Outlook 2010 profile for User Account B's mailbox (since User Account A has NO mailbox).  Will I also see the mailbox of User Account C?

    My testing shows no, and I'm theorizing it's because User Account A has NO mailbox.  No mailbox = No msExch* attributes on User Account A (like msExchDelegateListLink) for it to read and auto map - right?

    And is it "automap", "auto map", or "auto-map" in the documentation?  Important for me to know when searching.  ;)

     

    Gosh I hope this makes sense...

     

    Any response is appreciated.

     

    Thanks!

    I test it in my lab, and same result as yours.

    If you delegate User B full access permission on another mailbox(User D), the User D's DN will be listed in the msExchDelegateListBL attribute on User B, thus, In Exchange 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1), Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 clients automatically map to any mailbox(User D) to which a user has Full Access permissions.
