This topic explains how to view the Windows 2000 version of MAPI permissions in Exchange System Manager.

It is strongly recommended that you do not use this procedure to change MAPI permissions. Use this procedure only to view current permissions.

  1. In Exchange System Manager, right-click the folder whose permissions you want to view, and then click Properties.

  2. In the Properties dialog box, click the Permissions tab, and then press and hold the CTRL key and click Client permissions.

    The resulting dialog box is shown in the following figure. Note that all of the permissions check boxes are empty.
