Hi All,
We have a mailbox called Evidence - it is a shared mailbox with multiple subfolders that they categorise emails into.
Is there a way that I can allow users to move emails (between inbox and subfolders of inbox) but not delete anything?
I'm guessing this will be done from the command line so if someone could provide a example command of what it needs to be that would be great.

Thanks very much.

Hi,

1.    Log on to the mailbox with the owner's credential by using Outlook
2.    Right-click owner@yourdomain.com and select Folder Permissions
3.    Add the user you want to give review permission in Permissions tab
4.    Choose Reviewer permission at the Permission Level, and click OK
5.    Right-click Inbox (you can also choose what folder you want) and select Properties
6.    Add the same user in step 3 in the Name box
7.    Also choose Reviewer permission at the Permission Level
8.    Click OK
9.    Now the user who was granted the review permission to the owner can only review the owner's Inbox, he cannot delete any items in the Inbox

let us know

Will that person be able to move emails between subfolders?
Thanks for your help.

Not move (which implies deletion) but should be able to copy.

I performed that permissions already, but the only thing that i see happening is that the user can copy the mail from the shared mailbox that he has reviewer permissions on and can copy to his mailbox. He can't delete, or send or anything but he can drag a copy. can that be stopped.
