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 Recipients Permissions topic.

 

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

ClearAutoMapping

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

This parameter is available only in the cloud-based service.

The ClearAutoMapping switch specifies that the mailbox is automatically mapped (auto-mapped) by Autodiscover only into the mailbox owner's Outlook profile. The mailbox isn't auto-mapped to other users who have FullAccess permission to the mailbox.

To re-add auto-mapping capability on the mailbox for other users, run the command: Add-MailboxPermission -Identity <Mailbox> -AccessRights FullAccess -AutoMapping $true.

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the mailbox where you are removing permissions. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the mailbox:

For example:

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • GUID

  • Name

  • Display name

  • LegacyExchangeDN

  • Email address

Instance

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.MailboxAcePresentationObject

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

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.

ResetDefault

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

This parameter is available only in the cloud-based service.

The ResetDefault switch resets the default security descriptor of the mailbox. Permissions on the mailbox are reset so only the mailbox owner has FullAccess permission to the mailbox. The following types of permissions are not affected:

  • Recipient permissions (for example, SendAs, SendOnBehalf and delegates).

  • Mailbox folder permissions assigned using the MailboxFolderPermission cmdlets.

  • Mailbox folder permissions assigned using Outlook or other MAPI clients.

Also, because this switch removes FullAccess permission from other users on the mailbox, the mailbox is no longer auto-mapped by Autodiscover into the Outlook profiles of other users.

User

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.SecurityPrincipalIdParameter

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

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

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

IgnoreDefaultScope

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The IgnoreDefaultScope switch tells the command to ignore the default recipient scope setting for the Exchange Management Shell session, and to use the entire forest as the scope. This allows the command to access Active Directory objects that aren't currently available in the default scope.

Using the IgnoreDefaultScope switch 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.
