I need to add a certain user to have full access to a particular database (only this one) in Exchange 2010 and I need it so all future users added to this database will have the permission automatically added.

Correct syntax in PS?

Here you go:

Get-MailboxDatabase -identity databasename | Add-ADPermission -user username -AccessRights GenericAll

Note: If you have space in your database names or usernames use "" Like this

Get-MailboxDatabase -identity "database name" | Add-ADPermission -user "user name" -AccessRights GenericAll

Pipe -whatif, if you want to know, what it will do, then remove -whatif and apply.

Get-MailboxDatabase -identity "database name" | Add-ADPermission -user "user name" -AccessRights GenericAll -whatif

Thank you for the quick reply!  Will this make it so any new user added to this particular DB will also have those permissions added?

Yes, it will apply on new user as well. So no further action required.
