Mailbox Permissions

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-12-11

The permissions required to perform tasks on the Mailbox server role vary depending on the procedure being performed or the cmdlet you want to run. For more information about mailbox features, see Mailbox. For a list of permissions related to high availability, see High Availability Permissions.

To find out what permissions you need to perform the procedure or run the cmdlet, do the following:

  1. In the table below, find the feature that is most related to the procedure you want to perform or the cmdlet you want to run.

  2. Next, look at the permissions required for the feature. You must be assigned one of those role groups, an equivalent custom role group, or an equivalent management role. You can also click on a role group to see its management roles. If a feature lists more than one role group, you only need to be assigned one of the role groups to use the feature. For more information about role groups and management roles, see Understanding Role Based Access Control.

  3. Now, run the Get-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet to look at the role groups or management roles assigned to you to see if you have the permissions that are necessary to manage the feature.

    noteNote:
    You must be assigned the Role Management management role to run the Get-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet. If you don't have permissions to run the Get-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet, ask your Exchange administrator to retrieve the role groups or management roles assigned to you.

If you want to delegate the ability to manage a feature to another user, see Delegate Role Assignments.

Users who are assigned the View-Only Management role group can view the configuration of the features in the following table. For more information, see View-Only Organization Management.
