Restrict user from deleting mail

    Question

  • Hello All,

    I was wondering how to change user account permission so that he cannot delete mail from his account...!

    He should be able to read mail but not delete mail..!

    I'm running exchange 2003

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    By default Users are the owner of their mailboxes and get full mailbox permission on it therefore we cannot deny them any operation on folders inside mailboxes. For this issue, you can use Archive feature or Journaling to workaround this issue.

    Thanks

  • You would need to not make him an owner of the mailbox, then grant him delegate access to the inbox folder as Reviewer.
