Read only access to other users mailboxes Exchange 2007

Hi Everyone,

In Exchange 2007 SP3, I want to give a certain group the ability to add a mailbox using Outlook via the "Add Additional Mailboxes" in the advanced tab of Exchange profile.

They should only have read access to this mailbox once it has been added to their Outlook profile.

What would be the correct command for this?

Try below command for read only access. The group must be a mail enabled security group.

Add-MailboxPermission "MailboxName" -Accessrights ReadPermission -User "groupname"

@imkottees - Read only not full access.

@Rajitha14 - Before posting my question, this is command that I ran. I am able to open the inbox by using "Other User's Folder" but when I try to open the mailbox after adding it to my profile, I get the "Cannot Expand the folder" message.

With Read access, you can only open the mailbox as other user's folder. If you want the mailbox to be added as additional mailbox, permission must be given to the root of the mailbox using outlook.

The read only permission on a mailbox will only allow the user to open a mailbox by using
OPen Other Users Folder

Thwy will not be able to add it as a Additional Mailbox as the Mailbox may contain private items. If a mailbox does contain private Items, read permisison is not sufficiant.
As a result the user woudl basically need full access to the mailbox to add it as an Additional Mailbox

I gave myself full access to the mailboxes and from the folder level in Outlook, I was able to set the required permissions for it.
