Hi

In the past if I want to grant mailbox permissions to just users calandar's I've done it like this...
add-mailboxfolderpermission -identity JSmith:\Calandar -user jbloggs -accessrights PublishingEditor

If I want to now just grant permissions to the Tasks I would have thought I could use the :\Tasks switch but this doesn't work.  

is it called something else or is this just not possible?

Regards
Gareth

There is no change in the format.

The identity parameter accepts <PrimarySMTPaddreess:\Tasks> or <Alias:\Tasks> as a valid input. Please check if you are using a valid format and post the details here to check.

Yes you are quite right it does still work.. I think I had already granted full mailbox access to that user before which was why it was not letting me add the permission.  The problem was that the error message was misleading.

Thanks
