I get the attached image error when I try to running a the following cmdlet:
Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | Get-MailboxPermission -User "username" | ft identity, AccessRights

I have also run the following cmd to try and overcome this error with no luck:
Get-Item WSMAN:\localhost\Shell\MaxMemoryPershellMB 102400 -force

Any assistance would be great.

You cannot override the default size but you can change the formatting of your script to achieve the same results. It sends the requests individually to overcome the size limit

$mailboxes = get-mailbox -Resultsize unlimited
foreach($box in $mailboxes){
get-mailboxpermission -user "username" | ft identity,Accessrights
}

My fault, -user should be -identity

$mailboxes = get-mailbox -Resultsize unlimited
foreach($box in $mailboxes){
get-mailboxpermission -identity "username" | ft identity,Accessrights
}

I tried by entering -identity and it brings up page after page of the user's primary mailbox, but it never brings up any functional mailboxes the user has full manage access to granted via Exchange. When I enter:
get-mailboxpermission -user "username" | ft identity,Accessrights
it would bring up the mailboxes that the user has full manage access to along with his primary mailbox, but when I user
-user in the script you sent it asks for identity.

So what information are you wanting? Who has full access permissions for every mailbox? or all permissions for a single user?

This will give you a list of who has full access permissions for each mailbox
$mailboxes = get-mailbox -Resultsize unlimited
foreach($box in $mailboxes){
Get-MailboxPermission | where { ($_.AccessRights -eq “FullAccess”) | ft identity,User
}

Or if you are wanting to see what mailboxes a single user has full access to,

$mailboxes = get-mailbox -Resultsize unlimited
foreach($box in $mailboxes){
get-mailboxpermission -identity $_. -user "username" | ft identity,Accessrights
}

I'm trying to see what mailboxes a single user has full manage access to. I will try the one you sent and let you know. Thanks for your help and the quick responses.

I get the below error:
Cannot bind argument to parameter 'Identity' because it is null.

Try this, I apologize, I no longer have an exchange environment to test on. We moved to google apps.

$mailboxes = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited -properties Identity | Select Identity
foreach ($mailbox in $mailboxes) {
Get-MailboxPermission -identity $_.Identity -User "username" | FT Identity,AccessRights
}

This may work also

$mailboxes = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited
foreach ($mailbox in $mailboxes) {
Get-MailboxPermission | where { ($_.User -like “username”) -and ($_.AccessRights -eq “FullAccess”) } | FT Identity,AccessRights
}

Here's a version of Joshua's code with correct syntax.
$mailboxes = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited
foreach ($mailbox in $mailboxes)
{ Get-MailboxPermission -Identity $mailbox.Alias -User "username" | ft identity, AccessRights }
