Hi, I have made a user a member of Organisation, Server and Recipient Management but when they try to open users calendars or mailboxes they have no permission?

Are you asking for Exchange in the cloud or on premise?

Pretty much the same... Once you have the users setup. You will need to share the mailboxes in Exchange.

To set the specific mailbox and calendar permissions you will need to use Powershell.

Depending on your environment there are different ways in which to get into the AD Module for Windows PowerShell:

Once there, here is the command to apply Reviewer permissions to a shared Calendar/Mailbox:

Set Reviewer Calendar permissions
Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity SharedMailboxUserName@YourOrg.com\Calendar -User MemberUser@YourOrg.com -AccessRights Reviewer

items in italics should be replaced with your specific usernames

Exchange 2010 on premise. I have the exact same permissions and can open any mailbox whereas this user cannot?

I tried to run
get-mailbox  | Add-MailboxPermission -User ”<<user>>” -AccessRights ‘FullAccess’ but it says there are no more running pipelines

Try this:

Get-MailboxDatabase -identity “[mailbox database name]” | Add-ADPermission -user [username] -AccessRights GenericAll

Not sure you want to use the Get-Mailbox cmdlet..

For access to Calendar folders, I think you want Add_MailboxPermission cmdlet.

Get-Help Add-MailboxPermission

# Add-MailboxPermission Exchange 2010
Add-MailboxPermission -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -AccessRights <MailboxRights[]> -User <SecurityPrincipalIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Deny <SwitchParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-IgnoreDefaultScope <SwitchParameter>] [-InheritanceType <None | All | Descendents | SelfAndChildren | Children>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]


Add-ADPermission Send As
Add-ADPermission is an alternative to Add-MailboxPermission

In the case of the specific right to 'send as', there seems little difference between Add-MailboxPermission and Add-ADPermission.  However when it comes to other scripting maniplation their abilities diverge.
