Need to remove Everyone access from individual mailboxes

Hi

I have taken over the administration of an Exchange server. Each mailbox can be open by everyone else. I need all mailboxes to be secure and only accessible by that user.

If I go to "Active Directory Users and Computers" and select a user then click the properties of the mailbox > Exchange Advance > mailbox rights then I see the Everyone group as having read access. I cannot remove this group as I get the following error:

"You cannot remove "everyone" because the object is inheriting permissions from its parent.  Turn off the options for inheriting permissions and try again."

Where do I go to turn off "inheriting permissions?".

Incidentally I have checked the Exchange Domain Servers group and the only members are XXXServ01 (the server name) which is in the Active Directory folder of XXXXXX.co.uk/domain controllers.

To add the ShowSecurityPage DWORD value, click Edit, click New, and then click DWORD Value.
For the new value name, type: ShowSecurityPage
Double-click ShowSecurityPage, and then type 1 in Value data. Go to the next procedure.

I eventually found that the problem was due to the Authenticated users having full control
