ashwin, i think this is the command i need:
get-mailboxdatabase "mailbox database dbname" | get-mailbox | add-mailboxpermission -user loginIDofuser -accessrights fullaccess -inheritancetype all

this sets it for all current mailboxes on the database, is there a way to have it also apply for any future mailboxes we moved to 2010?

That is right. If you want to grant the FullAccess to a particular Mailbox Database then the above command should be run.

Nope, you would have to run the command again after you move the users to this Mailbox Database.
The command pulls out only the existing users from that Database and give Full Access to them.
So every time we move a user to this Database the command should be run again.
