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

Parameter Required Type Description

AccessRights

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.MailboxRights[]

The AccessRights parameter specifies the rights required to perform the operation. You can use the following values:

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

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter

The Identity parameter identifies the mailbox. You can use the following values:

  • GUID
  • ADObjectID
  • Distinguished name (DN)
  • Domain\Account
  • User principal name (UPN)
  • LegacyExchangeDN
  • SmtpAddress
  • Alias

Instance

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.MailboxAcePresentationObject

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

User

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.SecurityPrincipalIdParameter

The User parameter specifies the user mailbox that will get permissions added.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

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

Deny

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Deny parameter denies permissions to the user on the Active Directory object.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory. The DomainController parameter isn't supported on the Edge Transport server role. The Edge Transport server role writes only to the Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instance.

IgnoreDefaultScope

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The IgnoreDefaultScope parameter instructs the command to ignore the default recipient scope setting for the Exchange Management Shell session and use the entire forest as the scope. This allows the command to access Active Directory objects that aren't currently in the default scope. Using the IgnoreDefaultScope parameter introduces the following restrictions:

  • You can't use the DomainController parameter. The command uses an appropriate global catalog server automatically.
  • You can only use the DN for the Identity parameter. Other forms of identification, such as alias or GUID, aren't accepted.

InheritanceType

Optional

System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectorySecurityInheritance

The InheritanceType parameter specifies whether permissions are inherited to folders within the mailbox.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, 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 switch.

The Remove-MailboxPermission cmdlet allows you to remove permissions from a user's mailbox, for example, removing full access to another user's mailbox.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Permissions and delegation" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.
