exchange security permissions

Posted on 2013-11-01

Are there any tools/techniques to get a list of who has what security permissions over your exchange (2010) environment. I have more experience in RDBMS but exchange can still store sensitive data (in mail/folders), I presume there are default roles / groups for exchange security, so how do you go about getting a report of who has what permissions over your exchange.

Am I right in thinking there are default security roles/groups for exchange server security  as you get with other products like MSSQL , AD, vCenter etc etc etc.

Rancy - just going back to your first points (DSACLS or i have done with what sort of areas/objects were you checking permissions on with these tools, within your exchange environment? Did your analysis flag any open access to elements of exchange?
