Hi all,

I have inherited an SBS 2003 server - the client has issues with the fact that his staff can now Open/Other Users Folder in exchange and litterally open any users inbox.

Is there anyway i can reset the exchange server permissions to default? Or, does anyone have a list of what they should be so I can "start" over....

Thanks
Sean

Chances are the users with access have had permissions set on the mailbox store or even the exchange server - check under Advanced Management --> Exchange --> Servers --> Right-click on your server name and select properties, and click the "Security" tab - Check that "Everyone" and "Authenticated USers" Have only "Special Permissions" and possibly "Create Named Properties..." enabled. Also check to see if "Domain users" or any specific users have been added to this list.
Also check under [server name] --> First Storage Group -->right-click on Mailbox Store --> go to the "Security" tab. Again check for permissions assigned to "Everyone", "Domain Users" and "Authenticated Users". This is the most common way to give users far-reaching access, the other thing that might have been done is adding users to the "Enterprise Admins" group.

I have this same exact problem, although unfortunately it was the "Authenticated Users" and "Users" groups whose permissions were changed, so unfortunately just knowing that they should have "Special Permissions" vs. full control doesn't help. I know this doesn't help anyone else either, but if anyone happens to see this and could post the actual Special Permissions for these groups that would be great.
