Exchange 2010 - Share a mailbox with limited access

Good Afternoon,

The CEO of our company is requesting that his receptionist have read access to his mailbox.

Can someone please tell me how this can be accomplished in Exchange 2010?

I do see the "Manage Full Access Permission" option in the EMC, but giving the reception full access is not an option, for obvious security reasons.

The receptionist needs to be able to view the CEO's "entire" mailbox and not just his inbox.

Kindly advise how this can be done.

Kind Regards,
N

You need to assign the permissions using powershell. Please test the commands before executing.

Assign Read Permission to entire mailbox.

Add-MailboxPermission -Identity "CEOName" –User   “reciptionistname”-AccessRights ReadPermission -InheritanceType All

Then add "Reviewer" permission to mailbox and each folder within the mailbox.

Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity CEOName -User reciptionistname -AccessRights Reviewer
foreach($item in (Get-MailboxFolderStatistics CEOName |where { ($_.foldertype -ne "ConversationActions") -and ($_.foldertype -notlike "Recoverable*") -and ($_.FolderPath -notlike "/Sync*")})){$fname = “ReadTest:” + $f.FolderPath.Replace(“/”,”\”); Add-MailboxFolderPermission $fname -User reciptionistname -AccessRights Reviewer}
