Grant Admin Full Access to all mailboxes

Hi,
There are many websites speak about how to grant permission on all mailboxes on Exchange 2010 for admin user, but a lot of those websites have many differences with the explaination, so I would like to know what are the correct steps to grant full permissions on all existing mailboxes and FUTURE mailboxes on Exchange 2010.

Thank you in advance

From exchange power shell:

Get-Mailbox | Add-MailboxPermission  -User 'Mark Steele' -AccessRight FullAccess

Consider users privacy before doing that, if you have a privacy policy on your org/country.

I'll consider the privacy policies.

Does that command grant the full access also to the new mailboxes that will be added in the future?

No, it will only be applied on the current mailboxes.

You should answer according to the question I posted.

Sorry, I did't read the question carefully.

You can run below cmdlet after mailbox creation:

Add-MailboxPermission -Identity UserName -User 'User_how_needs_the_access' -AccessRight FullAccess

I don't know an automated way to do that.

> Akhater: do I need to add/modify admin user security settings in somewhere or its enough to apply the command you mentioned?
Is there any need to restart any exchange service to make changes take effect immediately?
Can I do it with GUI instead of PowerShell?

Well I am on mobile but it seems the blog post give many options to achieve what you are looking for. Some per mailbox and some per database as I did.
