Use the following command to apply permissions to user or group to get full mailbox access to all users on a database:

Get-MailboxDatabase "Name of database" | Add-MailboxPermission -User userid -AccessRights FullAccess

How can I do this for all databases
And do I need to run it after new users are created

Hi,

You could use PowerShell ISE, copy the cmdlet for each database and then save it as .PS1
Yes, you'd need to run it for each new user created unless you're already creating the mailboxes via powershell..

Thanks

I'd go with Group Policy as I thinks this can be done.

However this would also work if you were only trying to add permission on the accounts which were created within the last 7 days.

$week = (Get-Date).AddDays(-7)
Get-MailboxDatabase "Name of database" | where { $_.whenCreated -ge $week }  Add-MailboxPermission -User userid -AccessRights FullAccess

To run it for all mailbox databases, just leave off the mailbox database name.
e.g.
Get-MailboxDatabase  | Add-MailboxPermission -User userid -AccessRights FullAccess
