Exchange 2007 Mailbox Permissions

Hello, I'm running Exchange 2007 SP1 on Windows Server 2008. I'm looking to grant a user account access to view all the mailboxes on the server. I ran the following command on Powershell:

Get-MailboxDatabase -identity "SERVERNAME"\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database" | Add-ADPermission -user "useraccount" -AccessRights GenericAll

After I ran that command the user's name appeared under the full permission property box for all mailboxes, however, he wasn't able to access his mail account and several certificate warnings are now coming up when he tries to open his outlook client. I'm not sure if I'm going about granting access the wrong way or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First - a permission change in Exchange is not live. Due to the way Exchange caches permissions it can take two hours before a permission change takes effect.

It shouldn't have generated certificate prompts, that would have been a coincidence, unless it has caused a problem with the user's own account.
