Exhange 5.5 export file with permissions

I have to make a list of all the permissions off the mailboxes. So I want to make an export file with the permission objects.
MS Q188628 says: Obj-Admins, Obj-Perm-Admins and Obj-Users are "pseudo-attributes" created for the purpose of export of additional Permissions, and you have to add these fields to the CSV header.
I have tried this, but the fields are staying empty. I do not get any errors.

Does anyone knows what I am doing wrong?

At best, what you can do is navigate using Exchange Admin to: Site\Server\Private IS\Mailbox Resources. Ensure Mailbox Resources is highlighted. From the menu bar, select: View Columns..\"Add" Windows NT account

Then, highlight the topmost mailbox in the right-most window pane. From the menu bar, select File>Save Window Contents -- and designate the file name and save location.

This will only give the primary NT account. I checked the Raw properties of Exchange and it doesn't have a way to pull out the permissions on the permission tab. Sorry. This is about all you can do.

Its been a while since I had to perform an export. The Obj-Users header does work and I was able to obtain all the permissions associated with a mailbox.

E-mail me at javier.brown@covance.com and I will send you an unused export/csv file to use. Be sure to remove the read only attribute; this forces me to save a copy of the file instead of modifying the original ;-).
