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

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