How can I inhibit user's access to thier mailboxes without diabling the AD object? I need users to simply be blocked temporalry from theiir mailboxes so they can be backed up and restored at a new site. Is there a way to dfo this without using AD?

Deny access permission to the user's mailbox

If you want the user to continue to receive mail but you don't want the user to read that mail, you can block access using mailbox permissions.

Open the Properties window for a user, select the Exchange Advanced tab then click Mailbox Rights. The Permissions window for the selected user opens with the Mailbox Rights tab selected.

The permission list contains an entry called SELF. This well-known SID acts as a placeholder for the user account represented by the Active Directory object where the ACL resides.

Uncheck the Allow option for SELF and click OK to save the setting. By removing the Allow permission for SELF, the user continues to appear in the GAL and can still receive mail, but the user cannot access his or her messages


Hope this helps you.... cheers !!
