Using Powershell in Office 365 Exchange Enviroment

I have done a recent migration to Office 365 from Exchange 2003. Several users had read/wite access on other users Calendar and Inbox send permissions to send emails from their accounts from their own Outlook accounts.

I don't understand this Powershell and how to connect to my online Exchange server on the cloud.

I need to allow these users to have read/write access on these calendar's. Sharing them ONLY gives read access regardless if you share it, or publish it.

I need some good guidance on how to use the Powershell or a GUI that will allow me to accomplish what I need to do, give read and write access to the calendars, and the inboxes.

Users are able to use Outlook 2007 with SP3, or the web portal to access their accounts currently.

Thank you so much.

You must right click the calander then click properties. Then click the permissions tab. The permission set must be changed after the calendar is shared and through outlook that the exchange account owners calendar is connected to.  Change the default permission to publishing editor then add the users to the permission list of the calendar giving them publishing editor rights. I have faced this many times when working with clients that public office365

Larrymey,

What about doing the send as permissions so a user can see another user inbox, and send emails on their behalf ?

This must be power shelled and this is not recommended. The easiest way to do it is to setup multiple exchange on one computer so that they may have full rights to the account power shelling for an account to be able to send from another can cause major conflicts you better off setting up distribution groups for the names you want people to be able to control then power shelling to be able to send from distribution groups and have those groups deliver to the appropriate people.

Larrymey,

I went ahead and made the Calandar change as you suggested, and was successful on doing the same procedure for both the Inbox and the Contacts as well.

Simply select the folder you want to share and choose "share this folder" and send the email to the recipient. Then right click on the folder (Contacts, Inbox, Calendar, etc) and change permissions. Give them read or read/write etc permissions and any other options on the folder. ALSO, important to right click on the Mailbox line and change permissions to enable the Make folder visible option,, Otherwise the mailbox folder appears in the folder list but will not open.

So now I have a user that can open Calendar, Contacts and Inbox for one user, and Calendar and Contacts on another. Haven't tried to send from the inbox for that user yet, but I can see the Inbox.

THANKS !
