Manage Full Access Permissions

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

Use the Manage Full Access Permission wizard to grant Full Access permissions to users or groups for a selected mailbox. You can also use this wizard to remove Full Access permissions from users or groups.

When you grant the Full Access permission to another user for a mailbox, that user will be able to log on to the mailbox and access its entire contents.

Granting Full Access permissions doesn't grant the right to send mail as the selected mailbox. To grant Send As permissions, see the following topics:
