I created a group called Help_desk added the help desk users to the group.
At the exchange organization level how do i grant this group the ability to add/create exchange mailboxes and delete user mailboxes if a person is terminated, view the size and properties of users mailbox.

i have enabled the security page.
but at the main level which rights to i have to provide ? i dont want them to be able to open or view the users mailbox and i dont want them to have full admin rights.

Go into Active Directory and set the Group memberships for this group to include the exchange task you want. Also you may need to add the MMC plugin for this.


where in active directory? do i do this in aduc ? and is it done in the properties of the group ?
which settings do i have to select not sure which to choose and which not to choose.  i dont want to grant extra access, and im not sure where in ad to make the settings.
