Exchange 2010 (SBS2011) All access to users (new and old) calendars for all

This is a exchange 2010 on SBS2011

I want to allow access by default for new and old users to have access their colleagues calendars with reviewer access.

So I guess is there a way to change the default permission to reviewer for the staff group?

Thanks

David

The easiest way to achieve this would be to modify the current permissions assigned to the Default group. To do this use the code below:
$Users = Get-Mailbox | Select -ExpandProperty Alias
Foreach ($User in $Users) {Set-MailboxFolderPermission $User":\Calendar" -User Default -AccessRights Reviewer}

Open in new window

This is used in EMS?

How would i then if i needed to adjust one or two users to put the default user permissions back to normal?

Yes, you'll need to perform these commands in the Exchange Management Shell on the Exchange server or on a machine with the Exchange Management Tools installed.

If you need to change the permissions for the Default group back to normal for a specific user you can use this command to set it back to none (which is the default permissions for the Default group:)
Set-MailboxFolderPermission"User Name:\Calendar" -User Default -AccessRights None

Open in new window

Thanks, will this automatically work on new users? Or will the default user for them need to be edited separately?

ights Reviewer}
The specified mailbox "Philip"  isn't unique.

You will need to modify these permissions manually for new users unfortunately as these permissions are set when the account is created. Your only option would be to create a script to set up the account and mailbox then modify the permissions afterwards.

As for the error message, I run into the same issue too. Seems to occur when you have similarly named accounts. Let me have a play around with the code and I'll get back to you.
