Check shared mailbox permissions using Exchange Reporter Plus

While shared mailboxes are great for organizations that require multiple people to collaborate on a particular project, there are a lot of security issues to consider. For instance, as a business grows, a number of new employees may unintentionally inherit access rights over certain shared mailboxes. And if these mailboxes receive business-critical information that's for the C-Suite's eyes only, those inherited access rights could cause problems. Admins need insight into the permissions users have over shared mailboxes to avoid security issues and keep confidential data in the right hands. Using PowerShell for this, however, can be time-consuming and complex.

Luckily, Exchange Reporter Plus has got your back. View the access rights (full access, send as, delete item, read, change owner, or external account) employees have over shared mailboxes, right down to individual folders, using this comprehensive reporting, change auditing, and monitoring solution.
