Use the Get-MailboxFolderPermission cmdlet to view the folder-level permissions for a folder or a specific user's permissions for a folder.

Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity <MailboxFolderIdParameter> [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-User <MailboxFolderUserIdParameter>]

Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the mailbox and folder for which you want to view permissions. This parameter takes the following format: <SMTP Address or Alias of the mailbox>:<Folder path>, for example, john@contoso.com:\Calendar.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory.




The User parameter specifies who's granted permission to view or modify folder contents of the user and folder specified in the Identity parameter. You can use the following values:

  • Alias
  • SMTP address

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 folder" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.
