I have a mailbox in Exchange 2010 which I would like to grant all users full-access to.  I'd like to do this with PowerShell.

I'm thinking I would use the
Get-Mailbox

Open in new window

command to get a list of all mailboxes and pipe it to the
Add-MailboxPermissions

Open in new window

command, something like this.

Get-Mailbox | Add-MailboxPermission -Identity '<mailbox>' -AccessRights FullAccess

Open in new window


But this doesn't work.  Can somebody help correct my bad PowerShell please?!

Best regards
Paul

Not Very Secure
or if you want Domain users

Add-MailboxPermission -Identity '<mailbox>' -User "Domain Users" -AccessRights FullAccess


or if you want Authenticated users

Add-MailboxPermission -Identity '<mailbox>' -User "Authenticated Users" -AccessRights FullAccess

Thanks, but I should have clarified.  I want to add all users individually so the mailbox is mapped for them in the Outlook client.  If I add them as a group the mailbox is not automapped in Outlook.

Thanks
