I'm interested in understanding what the system attendant mailbox does, what processes it commands and what permissions it uses to process commands?

I thought I would ask after searching for 2 hours to fix a problem that was caused by the system attendant mailbox store being dismounted. I could not connect to client permissions or move pubilc folders exc.

Each Exchange 200x server has one (and hopefully only one) System Attendant mailbox. If the server has a System Attendent mailbox (note the misspelling), someone has probably been messing around with the server. Yes, I put that in mostly so it would be indexed with the incorrect spelling as a keyword also.
 
The System Attendant mailbox has a folder within it called SpecialPrivateFolderForFreeBusyStorage. This folder is used when CDO or OWA push Free/Busy information up to the store through the MSExchangeFBPublish process.
 
System Attendant mailbox is also required to be available during mailbox moves. For instance, if you have the mailbox store containing the System Attendant mailbox dismounted during a mailbox move, the move will fail and you’ll find events 9175, 9167, and 1008 in your application event log.

The SA mailbox is also used to send and receive the messages used by the legacy link monitoring service.
