Hi All

We are running Exchange 2003.

I was looking at setting up groups for delegating permissions for my Exchange Administrative group...however, just wanted to check - if User1 is a member of Group1 that is given the View Only Admin role, and also member of Group2 that has the Exchange Full Administrator role for that Administrative Group, which one takes preference and is there any place I can view this?

    You'll definitely get the higher permission in this case, because when allowing permissions, they just add on top of one another.  It's only deny permissions that would have this effect you're worried about, because a deny always overrides an allow.
    There is a place ... but I'm sorry I don't have any Exchanges nearby to find where it is.

    BTW the recommendation is to make 3 AD security groups for your 3 Exchange Admin roles.  Place each role into 1 of the groups.  Then you can just add groups and users to the AD group, which makes life easier in the future.
