Use this without specifying anything and it will be for all users old and new on all current dbs.

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

If you add a new db you will need to rerun the command

Glad it helped but do keep in mind this works only for existing users and not new ones you will able to run it again to affect new users (if that's what you want)
