Default Exchange rights for a Domain Admin

As a domain Administrator, if I logon to the console of exchange server and open the ESM All I get to see is the name of the exchange organization, a Recipients container that has 2 other sub containers :Details Templates and Address templates.
I see Tools container which has Monitoring and Status container thathas Notifications and Status containers.
I also see Message tracking center and Mailbox recover center tools under Tools container.

I wonder what kind of Exchange permissions  do I have : None, View Administrator, or what type of permissions............


Thanks

If you're using Exchange 2003 see here how you can assign rights:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/823018

It depend on whether domain admins are also in the exchange admins security group and which exchange admin permissions they are assigned. If they are in exchange full administrators or exchange organization administrators and do not need to be, remove them. If they are in that group and they are required to have those permissions to do exchange administration work, then yes they will have send as permissions. Adding them or removing them depends on what version of exchange you are using. Exchange 2007 permissions for exchange admins are added and deleted in exchange management console. 2003 they are added and deleted in ESM through delegation.

Haven't used Exchange in a loong time and I don't remember the details but even if the domain admin installed exchange he would have to grant him self access permissions before he can do anything.

Explained here:
http://www.tech-faq.com/configuring-exchange-server-2003-administrative-permissions.html

•Exchange View Only Administrator; allows the viewing of Exchange objects but not the modification of Exchange objects.
•Exchange Full Administrator; enables the individual to fully administer Exchange system objects and Exchange permissions.
•Exchange Administrator; enables the individual to only fully administer Exchange system information.


but confusion between Exchange Full Administrator and Exchange Administrator

this is from Microsoft:

**What is the difference between the Exchange Full Administrator and the Exchange Administrator role?

An Exchange Full Administrator is able to manipulate any Exchange object in the configuration naming context. Additionally, full administrators have permissions to modify the following settings on the Security tab of the following objects:

Exchange databases

MAPI and application public folder hierarchies

Address lists

An Exchange Administrator can manipulate any Exchange object, but does not have the ability to delegate permissions or change the settings on the Security tab on the Exchange objects listed above. However, an Exchange Administrator can change the permissions (Security tab) on public folders.
