Mailbox Permissions Reset #2

Hi, I need to be able to reset all mailboxes within my exchange to default 
permissions including all mailbox sub folders like inbox, calender etc

I'm aware of a tool called DAVAdmin from microsoft where you can go in and 
change the permission on mailboxes manually, but doing this o 100 mailboxes 
would take hours.

Anyone know how you can reset mailbox permissions (which include inbox, 
calendar etc) back to default permissions?

One exchange server running 2003 SP1 and MS Server 2003
Most clients Outlook 2003, other Outlook XP.

You can do this using PFDAVAdmin and create a root DACL permission that
can be propagated through all mailboxes. We had to do this recently to
add "Everyone" as author to Calendars for 2000 mail users.

Check the The Pfdavadmin documentation. It works much the same as
propagating client permissions via the Public Folder tools in ESM.

Hi Duane, Thank you for reply, formula works well. I just tweaked the cell referencing: =COUNTIF(C$19:$C19,C19) so that it counted 1 from my top most cell; i.e C19 (criteria), so didn't need the +1.

Row limit in Excel #2
Is there a row limitation in Excel ? Reason why I ask, I have a control that reads rows out of a Database. I have the option of creating this report by dates. With one date, it will yield 5965 rows and I can open up that report. Now with just the next day's date, it will yield 6060 rows and the Excel file will be created, but it encounters a Microsoft error. There is no difference in the data. I can in fact make the dates shift and include the date range that was failing but it wouldn't go to the current - i.e. 4/23/2004 to 3/29/05 will fail but 4/24/05 - 03/29/05 will wor...

mailbox split during mailbox move :(
If the mailbox move process dies in the middle of the mailbox and there is half of the mailbox on the new server and the other half on the old server. Is it possible to connect those two again?
