Posted on 2015-01-07
Last Modified: 2015-06-28
I have an exchange mail box which I open additional mailbox as well. I open like 5-6...but when I want to remove the additional mailbox is blank. I can add..but cannot remove. How do I reset that user account so no additional mailboxes are open in the profile?

If you are using exchange 2010 and 2013 you can use this below command

Remove-MailboxPermission "additionalmailbox name" -User "alias" -AccessRights FullAccess –AutoMapping $true

Just to add a little Background:

Exchange 2010 automatically attaches mailboxes that your account has Full Access-rights, so if you don't want this to happen, you have to use the command mentioned by SatyaPathak.

A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument '-AutoMapping'.

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Remove-MailboxPermission

Is the error I get. . .
