Dear Experts,

Could you please advise is there some method to set for a user who has access to Shared mailbox, that would be able to read mails only without deletion?

In PowerShell the syntax for giving access to a shared mailbox is the follow one, but this does not contain some read only kind of possibility:
Add-MailboxPermission "TestMailbox" -User IT\R.Smith -AccessRights fullaccess -InheritanceType all

I am aware of another syntax too:
Add-MailboxPermission -Identity "TestMailbox" -User IT\R.Smith -AccessRights ReadPermission
but this is some other permission related as tested and sure still allows the mail deletion, inspite of sounding to some read kind of permission

thanks,

The only reliable way I know of is to do it in the mailbox itself.
Therefore you will take away the Full Mailbox Access, then add permissions to the top of the tree and the sub folders. If you grant the permission to a group, then it will be easy to add and remove permissions in the future.

If you need to grant permissions to a tree, then use exfolders to help propagate the permissions down the tree.

You can also add the permissions with EMS using add-mailboxfolderpermissions, but that still will not do the full tree.

Simon.
