Exchange rights to correct all users' wrongs
Posted on 2004-04-14
Ok I've asked a similar question but didn't get the answer that I was looking for. It occurs to me that maybe I need to ask what I really want to be able to do. Its only after reflection that I believe that I understand myself. I want to be able to be selective about what I delete from users' email in the domain. After all some users use their email more effectively than others in an organization than others. So what does that mean? I want to be able to delete certain users emails from different folders based upon their posistion and "need to have" in the organization. whether it be "deleted" or "sent" or whatever. To do that I think I need the rights to open everyones exchange box and have truly administrative rights. Is there a way to do that? And how do I do that, Explicitly? I believe that it would mean some how using Outlook at my end to proxy into the exchange boxes, but how do I give myself the rights to enable that kind of thing with out going around to every users workstation and giving myself explicit "delegated" rights?
I need a step by step explanation because I've thought about it until my hair hurts. After all I want to be as discreet as possible and not have the end users get their feathers in a bunch over their paranoia and big brother watching.
