What are the minimum permissions required for an AD user to access their Exchange 2003 mailbox using a POP/SMTP connection?

I have setup an AD account and Exchange 2003 mailbox for a user.  The user is a member of the "domain users" group by default.  Unfortunately some shares and folders in this environment are accessible by domain users.  I'd prefer to limit this users access to only their Exchange 2003 mailbox and no other resources.  The user will use an Outlook 2003 client, but will connect to the mailbox using POP.

Because each user's primary group is "Domain User" as default (not changed). So if just for folder permission/printer resources, you can create one deny group

eg.
- Create "Deny_User_GROUP" domain group
- Add those users into this group
For folder
- Add this group into ROOT folder, and set FULL CONTROL to "Deny"
For printer
- Add this group into printer security tab, and also set ALL to "Deny"

Therefore, the group users could not access anymore.


I hope it can help you !
