Customer has 2 users that need to have access to another user's Inbox.  However, they only need to be able to review emails and not delete them or create new ones.  They don;t need full access.  Is there a way to do this?

You can set the permissions at the folder level.

Set-mailboxfolderpermission

If they need to open the mailbox all the time, then you can do that by setting the Read only permission at the top of the tree. Reviewer is read only.

Yes this is doable. You setup the account with Full Access still then using Outlook you can add / change permissions on a per user basis. Please see this article.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

If an account has "Full Access" then all other permissions are useless, because most permissive wins. Sorry to say but both of the above posts are wrong in suggesting to use Full Access.
