A few months ago I asked how I could set up a manager in exchange to be able to access everyone's mailbox. Now that manager is no longer with us and I am interested in reversing it. Add-ADPermission –identity "mailbox database" –user "Manager" -AccessRights FullAccess....was the command I was given last April. How can I change it so "manager" does not disply a FULL ACCESS RIGHTS in everyones mailbox?

Sorry, the correct one is remove-adpermission:

get-mailbox | remove-adpermission -user <manager's username> -accessrights fullaccess
I'd also run:
get-mailbox | remove-mailboxpermission -user <manager's username> -accessrights fullaccess

Also, for future reference, I think running the add-mailbox permission makes more sense than running the add-adpermission; unless your particular environment necessitates the AD permissions.
