  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    Is there anyone from you knows how to retrieve all the permissions on a mailbox of a certain user in exchange server 2003? For example, User1 on this user I would like to know the permission that the user1 has, like what mailbox access that the user1 has or who mailbox/s user1 can access?

    Is there any script or tool I can run on exchange server 2003?

    Thanks!

              Open Exchange System Manager
              select exch and every database , and go to the properties of it
              in the security tab check whether the user1 has what rights
              This should give you the answer

  • Hello,

    If you want to check the mailbox access of the user1 by going to the properties of user1 from active directory users and computers.

    If you go to the properties user1 -> properties -> Exchange Advanced -> Mailbox Rights.

    This is the place you can see the mailbox access for the particular user.

    If you want to see the access rights for the entire store which is associated with that mailbox then you check the mailbox store properties in the ESM.

    Think this will help you.


    Thanks,
    Vinod.

  • Exactly, so the other way to find this is the permission on the mail boxes for a particular user or users. So if user1 is accessing mbx1 and mbx2 , you can run the tool to get the permissons assigned to user1 or other users on mbx or mbx2.

  • If there are tonnes of mail boxes, you can use admodify to do that. http://windowsitpro.com/article/articleid/48450/how-can-i-dump-out-the-mailbox-permissions-on-a-microsoft-exchange-server-box-or-bulk-change-multiple-users-attributes-at-once.html

    If this is only for one mail box, you can check this individually from the exchange server,

  • Hi Raj,

    I believe that's not answer my question. I want to know user1 what mailbox/es he/she can access, except of course user1 mailbox because I knew how to do that.
