Good day. We have an Exchange 2003 server and all mailboxes are setup to allow for everyone in the company to view or access all mailboxes. One user just requested (for security purposes) to not allow anyone to view her mailbox. I was trying to remove the permissions set to Everyone for Read but it tells me that the permissions are inherited and that i have to turn that off.

1) How do you remove those permissions?
2) Will that remove it from all mailboxes?
3) Can i simply alter one mailbox and leave the rest the same as they are now?
