Everybody on system can access any other users Inbox.

Have just discovered that any user on our 50 mailbox Exchange 2000 system can access any other user's mailbox by, in Outlook by going to "Open/Other user's folder".........even if that user's inbox permissions are set to "default/none" and no other users are added to the permission list?

What gives?
1 Solution
go to AD users and computers
click Advanced view
then go to any user that has a mailbox, right click, properties then Advanced
click Mailbox Rights

there you will find all the groups and users that have access

check which ID has the attribute full Mailbox access, and check the members of theses group

i would think that you have added all your users to a group that has full access

Good call,.....our company owner had gone in and added a bunch of people to the domain admins group, "just in case they needed to get in while you are away"  Gently explained the associated problems and issues....and took away his domain admin rights too....
