Remove share permissions on user mailbox.

When looking at the Exchange Management Console I can see that one of our user's mailboxes is listed as being a "Shared Mailbox" in the column titled "Recipient Type Details".

I would find out who the mailbox is being shared with and then I would (probably) like to remove those share permissions.

My thoughts are that this is a carry over from our Exchange 2000 migration from many months ago.

I am fairly unfamiliar with the Power Shell but I can pick my way through it well enough to get along.

Thanks.

Open an Exchange Management Shell and run
Set-Mailbox Name-of-Mailbox -Type Regular
And you should be sorted. (of course substitute 'Name-of-Mailbox with then name of the mailbox you want to convert)

See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb201749(EXCHG.80).aspx for more information.

Sorry, I missed one part of your question. My answer explains how to convert the mailbox so it shows as a regular one. The permissions would still be the same.

If you run Exchange 2007 SP1 you can look in the Exchange Management Console, right click the mailbox and select 'Manage Full mailbox access' to see who have access to the mailbox.

Thanks!  I knew it was something relatively simple but the command shell is still a bit of a mystery to me.
Thanks again!
