Hello
I'm trying to restrict permission on a mailbox account so that it can not write to it's own contact list.
I want the account to able to only read it's own contact list

Where do I set the permissions?

This is not possible at least not on the users own mailbox because well he is the owner of that mailbox.

Depending on the goal you might want to think about using shared or ressource mailboxes where you can set delegated access.

Generally spoken permission are set using the Exchange powershell - Add-ADPermission for instant would be one of the used cmdlets.

Perhaps you're right even though I believe it's possible. I tried setting permissions on the mailbox in the information store top and the contacts folder beneath it with add-adpermission command but with no luck.

Maybe if I set permissions right on the AD user or using ADSI Edit.. suggestion?

The goal is to use this mailbox as a shared contact list only. Users will add this mailbox to their iPhones and only sync the contacts. We don't want the users to be able to add/change or delete contacts hence the permission restriction we are trying to accomplish.

You will not be able to restrict the user from adding to their local contacts but you could try a Public Folder setup for this.

I have 2 possible sources to assist you in setting it up:

Have a look at this one as well if you run into any issues: http://www.outlookforums.com/threads/87792-create-a-contacts-list-on-exchange-2010/

Thanks HendrikWiese for your reply and the links. I probably should have mention the reason I want to resctrict the permisisons on the accounts own folders.

The goal is to have a shared contact list on the mobile devices using activesync. But I don't want the users being able to write or delete the contacts thus the permission restriction.
The Public Folder solution works as long as we use it within Outlook only. As far as I know you can't "activesync" a PB.

You will be able to sync the public folders.

Have a look at the following link: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/56603-36-sync-mobile-exchange-public-folders
