Set-MailboxFolderPermission

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2014-03-13

This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange Server 2013 and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other.

Use the Set-MailboxFolderPermission cmdlet to update folder-level permissions for all folders within a user's mailbox. The cmdlet differs from the Add-MailboxFolderPermission cmdlet in that it edits an existing permission entry.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

Set-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity <MailboxFolderIdParameter> -AccessRights <MailboxFolderAccessRight[]> -User <MailboxFolderUserIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example assigns permissions for Ed to access Ayla's Marketing mailbox folder and applies the Owner role to his access of that folder.

Set-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity ayla@contoso.com:\Marketing -User Ed@contoso.com -AccessRights Owner

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 "Mailbox folders" entry in the Recipients permissions topic.
