"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The rule with Exchange is don't touch the permissions in Exchange. Many of the permissions that you think aren't correct are there for a very good reason. People start removing permissions and then wonder why Exchange fails.

You should find that "Everyone" has read on the "READ PERMISSIONS" property only on every mailbox.

If that isn't the case then you need to define exactly which permission you are concerned about, as it isn't clear from your original question.
