I maintain our exchange 2010 mail server environment.

I want to have access to all mailboxes in the environment.  Meaning from my desktop not from exchange I want to be able to access all users mailboxes via Outlook if I need to change anything.

How do I give myself permission. I am an exchange administrator and it is still asking me for the users ID & Password.
Thanks

Being the exchange administrator does not give you the right to access the users mailboxes. unless you org. policy allow that.

use the follwing to get access to mailboxes of all users

Get-mailbox | Add-MailboxPermission -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -AccessRights <MailboxRights[]> -User <SecurityPrincipalIdParameter>

You don't need to specify the identity switch as you're piping in a get-mailbox.

get-mailbox | add-mailboxpermission -user <your username> -accessrights fullaccess

Will this give me FULL access to all mailboxes, and access it through Outlook:

get-mailbox | add-mailboxpermission -user <your username> -accessrights fullaccess
