List Exchange mailbox permissions using Exchange Reporter Plus

Emails form the backbone of workplace communication. As an Exchange admin, you need to monitor mailboxes, and more importantly, review mailbox permissions periodically. This information is useful for:

  • Planning migrations to a different Exchange Server version.
  • Checking whether someone other than owners or trusted delegates has access to mailboxes.
  • Identifying unintentional access to mailboxes due to inheritance.
  • Detecting if a rogue user has permissions over important mailboxes, letting you prevent data loss or leaks.

If you want to avoid mailbox security issues, then you need to check the permissions users and groups have over mailboxes, mailbox folders, shared mailboxes, and public folders in your organization. Exchange Reporter Plus gives you the granular Exchange mailbox permissions reports you need to maintain a secure Exchange environment.

Mailbox permissions

Quickly view the permissions users have over mailboxes in your organization. With Exchange Reporter Plus, you can:

Mailbox permissions

  • Find users who have access rights over select mailboxes.
  • View the mailbox permissions of Active Directory users and groups you specify.
  • Filter reports based on permission type (i.e. full access, send as, delete, read, change permission, change owner, external account).

Shared mailbox permissions

While shared mailboxes aid in collaboration, they also have security issues. For instance, with growing businesses, many new employees can unintentionally gain access to important shared mailboxes. Exchange Reporter Plus allows you to:

Shared mailbox permissions

  • List the permissions users and groups have over shared mailboxes.
  • Filter permissions by type, including full access, delete item, read, change owner, send as, or external account.

Public folder permissions

Ensure data security and comply with regulatory mandates by keeping track of public folder permissions. Exchange Reporter Plus gives you complete details about administrative and client permissions for all public folders including the:

Public folder permissions

  • Public folder names.
  • Administrators with permissions.
  • Access rights (and whether they were inherited).

Calendar folder permissions

Calendar folder permissions

Get comprehensive information on calendar permissions, including details about the users or groups with permissions and the access rights they have. Run Exchange Reporter Plus' Calendar Folder Permissions report for specific mailboxes (including room mailboxes, shared mailboxes, and user mailboxes), mailbox folders, or all mailbox folders in your organization.

Non-owner mailbox permissions

A rogue user with permissions over an important mailbox in your organization could sabotage business operations. List the access rights non-owners have over other users' mailboxes to identify unauthorized permissions before any critical resources can be affected. Exchange Reporter Plus allows you to:

Non-owner mailbox permissions

  • Identify users and groups that have access to mailboxes that aren't theirs.
  • View the mailbox over which they have permissions.
  • Show the access rights of those users and groups.
  • Filter results based on permission type (full access or send as).

Up the security of your mailbox data by auditing users' permissions over mailboxes. Exchange Reporter Plus' granular reports will help you meet compliance requirements and they come in handy during security assessments.
