I have a large number of Exchange accounts I'd like to export to .PSTs and delete. Is there a command in Exchange Management Shell to assign full access permissions to all mailboxes in a OU, instead of mailbox name per mailbox name? This would save me a lot of time.

Rajith,
When I tried running your entry, I got the error below.
Add-MailboxPermission : The input object cannot be bound to any parameters for
the command either because the command does not take pipeline input or the inpu
t and its properties do not match any of the parameters that take pipeline inpu
t.
At line:1 char:61
+ Get-mailbox -organizationalunit Test | add-mailboxpermission  <<<< -identity
user -accessrights fullaccess

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I don't have a server in front.
Try add-adpermission.
