Exchange Mailbox Permission Reports

Mailbox permissions management is extremely vital for the efficient functioning of an Exchange organization. This is mainly due to tougher compliance audit standards and increased level of security that is required to protect confidential information.

Exchange Reporter Plus provides three reports on mailbox permissions.

With such off-the-shelf reports, you can check permissions associated with mailboxes or users easily.

High profile mailboxes like that of a company's CEO or CFO will have a delegate assigned to them so as to it to manage email messages and coordinate the manager's tasks. Assigning excessive permissions to delegates may prove disastrous for the sensitive data contained in the mailbox. To effectively monitor such mailboxes, the administrator can schedule and generate this report.

Permissions based on users

 Permissions based on Users

The permissions report based on users throws light on the following aspects.

With shared resources like shared mailboxes, the access rights will differ across groups. Group A might have Full mailbox access rights, Group B might have Send as permission and User A might have Change owner permission. As the number of such shared resources increases, the access control entries also increases. This report shows all the permissions granted to non-owner mailboxes. You can now get this information without having to manually script on PowerShell.
