Mailbox rights

Posted on 2005-05-03

There are three administrators in my office.  We are all members of the same admin groups on the network.

Somehow, two admins are able to log into any exchange mailbox (for example in OWA even with SSL w/ forms auth enabled) using their own username and password, not the users.. yet one cannot.

I have compared all the groups we are members of and they are all the same.. I have looked at every local group on the Exchange server, IIS, etc.

Any ideas on why they have these rights when one does not... I would like to make sure only the user can log into their own mailbox.

Thanks in advance.

In Exchange system manager right click the mailbox store and pull properties.
Click the security tab
Grant the one account that is having difficutly the "sendas" "receiveas" permissions.
Force AD replication.
Now the user should be able to get into any mailbox using his own credentials.
