  • Question

  • I have a need for user A to have read only access to user B's Exchange 2007 mailbox.  This needs to be done with out user B's knowledge.

    Possible: Add-ADPermission -Identity "userA" -User "userB" -AccessRights GenericRead

    Would the above command accomplish this?

    I have done similar things with full access and special access like BES accounts. 


    Thanks, Grady Vogt

  • There is no such thing as read only access to the entire mailbox. You can only delegate read access at the folder level.

    When granting rights a service account you have to also grant extended rights to allow it to access the mailboxes.

  • No, that command cannot help you achieve the goal.

    If you need to create one read-only mailbox in Exchange 2007, you can follow the blog given by James.
