Exchange 2010 Roles for an Administrator


I want to make someone else an administrator of Exchange 2010. What are the minimum roles this person needs to have so that they can make any changes they want, which includes adding or removing public folders? I want this person to be the main administrator.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Add them to the exchange organization group.  This will give them the permissions to manage the exchange server

This is also to get the management tools on their system
This link is direct from Microsoft that goes over their reworked version of "delegating" administrative functions in Exchange 2010.

Minimum that person needs to have Organization Management, View-Only Organization Management, Recipient Management and Public Folder Management.

Thank You!
