Every time a new mailboxes is created a default list of users are automatically added to the "Manage Full Access Permission" properties for the mailbox.

I know how to remove them but I need to stop them from auto populating every time a new mailbox is created and for the life of me I can not find where these users are being stored or pulled from.

Thank you in advance.

Server or database permissions.
This should show you the permissions:

Get-MailboxDatabase | Get-ADPermission

Simon,
Thank you for the response.  Although, I am not sure I follow your question.  The permissions are not server or database.  They are at the mailbox level.

Let me apologize in advance if I am about to explain what you already know.  I just want to rule out any ambiguity.  If you open the "recipient configuration" select "mailbox" and then right click on any user's mailbox and select "Manage Full Access Permissions" there are user's listed here that were not manually entered.  They are being populated when the mailbox is first created.

Thank you.

Simon,
I think I follow what you are saying and may have found it based on your suggestion.  I see that the accounts in question have "ms-Exch-Store=admin" permissions on the databases.
Let me change these and let me get back to.

Solution:
The way I resolved it was to use ADSIEdit.  I drilled all the way down to:
CN=Configuration, DC=MyDomain, DC-com ->CN=Services ->CN=Microsoft Exchange->CN=First Organization->CN=Echange Administrative Group->CN=Servers->CN=Server01.  Then open properties on the server, click the security tab, and remove the offending accounts.

Simon.... thank you for pointing me in the right direction.
