Add-MailboxPermission

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1

Topic Last Modified: 2013-04-08

Use the Add-MailboxPermission cmdlet to add permissions to a mailbox.


Add-MailboxPermission -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -AccessRights <MailboxRights[]> -User <SecurityPrincipalIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Deny <SwitchParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-InheritanceType <None | All | Descendents | SelfAndChildren | Children>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]


Add-MailboxPermission -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -Owner <SecurityPrincipalIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]


Add-MailboxPermission [-Identity <MailboxIdParameter>] -Instance <MailboxAcePresentationObject> [-AccessRights <MailboxRights[]>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Deny <SwitchParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-InheritanceType <None | All | Descendents | SelfAndChildren | Children>] [-User <SecurityPrincipalIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This cmdlet lets you grant permissions to a mailbox. For example, you can use it to grant a user full access to another user's mailbox.

To run the Add-MailboxPermission cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated, at a minimum, the following on the server on which the mailbox resides:

  • Exchange Server Administrator or Exchange Organization Administrator

In addition, the account you use may require additional permissions within Active Directory Domain Services to perform certain operations. To make sure that you have the appropriate permissions, the account you use must be delegated the Account Operators permission in the domain in which the target mailbox-enabled account exists.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 , see Permission Considerations.

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.MailboxRights[]

The AccessRights parameter specifies the rights needed to perform the operation. Valid values include:

  • FullAccess
  • ExternalAccount
  • DeleteItem
  • ReadPermission
  • ChangePermission
  • ChangeOwner

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the mailbox that is getting permissions added.

noteNote:
The Identity parameter requires the full name of the user in quotation marks.

Instance

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.MailboxAcePresentationObject

The Instance parameter enables you to pass an entire object to the command to be processed. It is mainly used in scripts where an entire object must be passed to the command.

Owner

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.SecurityPrincipalIdParameter

The Owner parameter specifies the owner of that mailbox object.

User

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.SecurityPrincipalIdParameter

The User parameter specifies the user mailbox that the permissions are being granted to on the other mailbox.

Deny

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Deny parameter denies permissions to the user on the mailbox.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

To specify the fully qualified domain name of the domain controller that retrieves data from the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter in the command.

InheritanceType

Optional

System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectorySecurityInheritance

This parameter is used to specify how far down the Active Directory object structure the “read” permissions are inherited.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You do not have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf parameter.
