Exchange 2013 - Mailbox Permissions not same as AD object

We have a service account that needs permissions to every mailbox. One specific mailbox does not have these permissions, however when I view permission on the associated AD user object, they are there. How do they sync? How can I fix this/

mailbox permissions are not the same as AD permissions.

You would need to grant access to the mailbox through exchange.

Usually you'll do this type of mass access on the database.

Get-MailboxDatabase | Add-ADPermission -user <user> -AccessRights GenericAll
