You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Role groups" entry in the Role Management Permissions topic.

You can't use the EMC to remove a mailbox as a member of a role group.

To remove a mailbox as a member of a role group, use the following syntax.

Remove-RoleGroupMember <role group name> -Member <member>

This example removes the mailbox Robert from the Seattle Administrators role group.

Remove-RoleGroupMember "Seattle Administrators" -Member Robert
