Hello,

I was reading the following article on Experts Exchange regarding providing access to a user and/or group for allowing access to all Exchange 2010 mailboxes.

I brought this to the attention of an colleague, and he mentioned that this syntax would be another option.

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited -Filter {RecipientTypeDetails -eq 'UserMailbox'} | Add-Mailboxpermission -User <Identity> -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All –Automapping $False


The section I bolded, is that really necessary to use in this command string? What gain would there be from using this vs the syntax originally provided in the link, if any.

Thanks.

In the article you mentioned, it is applied to only one users. If you want to apply it on all users. You need to use command your friend provided.

Your colleague used a filter to apply it on User Mailbox type. As there are other type of mailboxes, like room mailboxes. So this filter will make to sure that it is applied to only usermailboxes type. You can add -whatif at the end and see what it will do and remove -whatif when you want to apply it. Hope this helps.

The Get-Mailbox command should call out all mailboxes in Exchange, correct? That previous link's syntax should work fine for all mailboxes, from what I see.

With that command I posted above, its calling out the -User function, however you should be able to specify a AD Group there as well, if not mistaken?


Thanks.

Amit,

Just to confirm, by running the command below, there should be no negative affects against my Exchange environment, correct?

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited -Filter {RecipientTypeDetails -eq 'UserMailbox'} | Add-Mailboxpermission -User Administrator -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All –Automapping $False

Since its using the -User command, would it be possible to  place a AD Group name there instead?

Thanks.

This command will just add the permission. So no impact.

What about adding an AD group in place of the individual user?
