Hi,

Please help. I am looking for a powershell command that will list all the shared mailboxes a particular security group has access to.

Thanks.

This would be a setting on a mailbox, so you're going to have to loop through all of your mailboxes.

Now, if you're really only concerned about mailboxes of type "Shared Mailbox" then you can scale that down significantly.  This will only work if you really mean "mailboxes of type: Shared" and not just 'user mailboxes that have been shared."  There is a difference.

Is that what you're trying to do?

Essentially, you're looking at doing the following:

foreach ($mb in (Get-mailbox) {if (get-mailboxpermission $mb -user DOMAIN\GROUP){write-host DOMAIN\GROUP has access to $mb}}

Open in new window


output would look like:

DOMAIN\GROUP has access to John Doe
DOMAIN\GROUP has access to Bill Gates
DOMAIN\GROUP has access to Another Mailbox

The line above is going to return a TRUE for any mailbox that has DOMAIN\GROUP listed in it's mailbox permissions.

There are a number of ways you can scale down the number of mailboxes you operate on, and also a lot that you can do with the output.

Yes. They are only interested in actual shared mailboxes since they keep a tight lid on granting groups to regular user's mailboxes.
