Unable to expand other users mailboxes in exchange 2007 / outlook 2007

Have followed this article to apply permissions using the powershell.... but to no avail.

We are unable to expand the folders that we have granted permissions to. Very strange. Any help would be appreciated.

do it from within outlook setting the permissions on the root folder then each of the sub folders that they need access too.

Zanewest... I am trying to add the mailboxes into avanced on more options (from Account Settings) as always open extra mailboxes. So I don't think it works from delegation... if that is what you are saying to do it from?

I am confused!

Can you clarify.

outlook 2007 has the mailbox sharing option which are there to allow users to view folders and mailboxes.
so right mouse click on mailbox- User Name
select change sharing permissions.
set the apropriate permissions do this for the subfolders too this way they will have access to which ever folders within that mailbox thet they have permissions too

Hi,

If you want to grant full access to a mailbox for a particular user (full access = inbox / calendar / sent items..etc), it may be easier for you to grant access from the exchange server..

Add-MailboxPermission "Mailbox" -User "Trusted User" -AccessRights FullAccess

It takes a bit of time (up to 3 hours) for the permissions to sync.

Thanks
Matthew

Hi,

The sharing permissions don't seem to work if you are opening the mailbox & not the users folder.

I have done what you are saying with your last comment.... but with slightly different syntax... as per previous article I mentioned above. What is the difference?

Thanks.

When a user does it via outlook, you need to ensure that they have granted "folder visible" access to the mailbox/top level folder.

Or you can as an admin, apply permissions to the whole mailbox using the command above.

The command above is the correct syntax.

Thanks... have tried with the slightly different syntax. Will it take that long to propagate on a small Exchange site... ie. less than 50 users?

Also - can you apply these mailbox permissions to golbal groups?

It is a IS/DS sync issue, so it can take a little bit of time, you can force it by restarting the information store.

I am 90% confident that you can apply this to security groups, but I cannot recall if they need to be global or universal.

what is the easiest way to add send as permissions?

Also - can the mailbox access rights be applied to global groups? + mailbox access?

These commands are all on the MS site :)

Add-ADPermission "Mailbox" -User "Domain\User" -Extendedrights "Send As"
