Permissions delegation for decentralized administration

I am in the process of working with a customer on a new Exchange Server 
2003 deployment.  This will be a fairly large deployment with IT staff 
at several sites needing various levels of access to the Exchange 
objects.  Specifically, I'd like to restrict access as much as possible 
down the administrative group.  That part of it I'm not terribly 
concerned about, and there seems to be plenty of documentation 
regarding the delegation of permissions on administrative groups.

The real question, however, is this:  what level of permissions are 
needed *OUTSIDE* of the administrative group, i.e., at the organization 
level, for day-to-day operational tasks?  I'm thinking of things like 
working with recipient policies, address books, etc.  I'd prefer to 
limit permissions outside of the administrative groups as much as 
possible, but I also recognize that some level of permissions is 
required at the organization level as well.

TIA for your help.

Delegate GAL Updates
Hi In advance, I would like thank you for any help you may give. I am running Exchange 2003 and would like to delegate updates of phone numbers / departments etc within the GAL to reception (obviously I do not want them in Active Directory). I have looked through the delegation options but cannot find the bit I need. I have also looked at web gal but this only seems to be applicable to Exchange 2000. Any ideas guys and girls? Thanks Owen Matthew Thanks for the rpely I did'nt find that i could secure it well enough for reception to use, (delegation process) unless i am missing som...

Delegates and Sent Items
Hi All I have a user who wishes to have a secondary email address which will be used for Q&A from people who he would not normally give his work email address to. He also wishes a number of his colleagues to have full permission to send and receive from this account also. I have set up a mail account on the Exchange server and added all concerned as delegates to the Q&A account. Each user opens the account using File>Open>Other Users Folder. They can then read/reply forward etc. The problem is that when they send a mail from this account, the message appears in their ...

Automatic delegation of Calendar folder?
I have a service mailbox for an application which requires 'Author' privilages to all users calendars to add and remove events and appointments. At the moment the permissions are added manually to each mailbox after it is created. Is there a way to automate this? The only way I can think of is using a vbscript which runs daily and updates all calendars with the permissions. Would this work? Or is there a better way of doing it? Thanks for any suggestions. Ben Stokes. All the solutions I can think of look roughly the same as yours (write code). <benstokes1@gmail.com> wrote...

Public folder permissions #27
Is there a link or a white paper somewhere that can give me a definition of what the Anonymous and Default permissions allow? I am trying to figure out how these two permissions interact with public folders? I'm sure there are articles out there, but basically, "default" permissions apply to anyone in your Exchange Organization..."anonymous" permissions would apply to anyone external to your organization. For example, anonymous permissions of "contributor" would allow anyone outside your organization to send email to that folder, if it had a routable smtp...

Administrative privileges for saving to CD
Whenever I try to save an Excel spreadsheet to a CD-R I get a message that states I must have administrative privileges. I had the CD drive checked by Dell - no problems. Is it a setting that needs to be changed? Any ideas? Thanks Hi Tess, Excel can't write to a burner. Nor will the operating system. You need to save the file to your HD and then use "burner" software to write the file to the CD/DVD. -- John johnf 202 at hotmail dot com "Tess" <twong03@fastmail.fm> wrote in message news:037f01c3d26a$b7e12da0$a301280a@phx.gbl... | Whenever I try to save ...

Task sync requires giving permission to address book
Each time I synchronize my PocketPC with my computer -- especially tasks, it seems -- Outlook asks specific permission to share items in my address book. This is a pain because I have to answer the dialog box each time. Is there any way to turn this "feature" off? This did NOT happen to me using Outlook XP. I recently upgraded to Outlook 2003. (I run Franklin Covey's PlanPlus software, and I upgraded from 1.0.5 to 2.0 at the same time I upgraded Outlook.) I have an iPAQ 1910 running WinCE 3.0.11171.

Public folder "send as" permissions in Exchange 2000
We are running Exchange 2000 native in a Win2K native AD, and have a GROUP of people that want to be able to "send as" a public folder. We created the email-enabled public folder and the global security group... and populated the security group but can't seem to find the right place to put the security group to give them the right to "send as" the folder. Most of the info we have found on the subject deals with someONE's mailbox, not a public folder. Suggestions? Directions? Please!!! Thanks! Mike ...

Rename System Administrator?
In an effort to stop all the fake e-mail that comes to our users from info@ourdomain.com, admin@ourdomain.com etc telling our users their accounts have been suspended, including zipped up virii, etc, we have told brightmail to block all messages coming from outside to inside from *@ourdomain.com, and then we whitelist the one or two addresses that could actually come from outside to in without being a spoof, like our marketing blasts. The last step we are trying to accomplish, in an effort to keep user confusion to a minimum, is to rename the emails that come from System Administrator,...

Permissions Issue? (User cannot reply to other accounts)
Afternoon all, I have 3 users within out company who are contract sales reps. We have 1 person who manages leads within the company, then assigns them to certain sales reps for follow-up. When they get assigned, the use has access to ONLY his leads and cannot promote them. The Manager promotes, but then the sales rep can work with his Account, Contact, and Opps. The problem we are running into is that if Sales Rep A. sends a tracked e-mail and copies Sales rep B. on the e-mail, Sales Rep B. cannot reply to the e-mail without getting a permissions error from CRM. I am wondering wh...

Inheritance of permissions on a user account keeps changing

Send As permission
Hi All, I have a problem. I need to give two people Send As permission on a mailbox. I gave them Full Mailbox Access in Mailbox Right in the Exchange Advance tab. That's fine.

Any reason to NOT have a System Administrator mailbox?
Maybe I'm missing something? Is there any good reason to NOT have a System Administrator mailbox? When automated messages are generated by the server, they say they are "From: System Administrator".

Not recieving email after delegate creates meeting request for me.

Mailbox permissions #18
I run exchange 2003 in windows 2003 domain, and we use outlook 2000 SP3. One of my users noticed in outlook 2000 SP3 they could go to file, open other users folder, and they were able to open anyone's inbox this way. Obviously I don't want people to be able to open other users inboxes. I went into ADUC, users properties, exchange advanced, mailbox rights. I have many groups and users listed. I noticed the everyone group was not denied anything, so I started to deny access, and when I did that then users could not get into their own mailboxes. Any suggestions would be great. ...

Public folder permissions in exchange 2003
Hello I would like to know if it is possible for users of outlook 2003 to view the permission folder of any public folder in Exchange 2003.

Event 1030, Public Folders
This morning, users started noticing the following issue: Symptoms: Clients can not access any of the public folders that they normally could. If the user has explicit permissions defined in client permissions (ESM, PF Props, Perms, Client Perms) they are able to access their PFs without issue. If the user had their rights defined by group membership, the PFs are no longer visible. If I add a user to the Client Permissions of a PF, then they are able to access the folder. If I remove and re-add the group, there is still no change. Environment: Exchange 2003 Native Mode running on...

Public Folder permissions for Groups/DL's and Native mode.
Running Exch2003 SP2 in Win2003. I've got problems assigning permissions to public folders using groups/distribution lists. I get an error the permissions cannot be saved. Using individual users however does work. At first I thought this was due to the fact the we were still running Exchange in mixed-mode. That's also what the event log tips me about. I switched to Native Exchange mode since I don't need pre-Exchange2000 servers, but the error is still there. I rebooted all Exchange servers. My active-dir is still in mixed-mode, but I'm pretty sure I read that the to m...

Messed up file permissions, how to fix
I believe my Exchange Server 2003 SP2, installed on Windows 2000 server, was set with Everyone having Full permissions. I recently changed this to limit Everyone to read only permissions, then granted SYSTEM full change permissions (everything but take ownership). And I may have made the mistake of overwriting these permissions down the tree... The server is working flawlessly except OWA no longer works... When I try to logon, here is what happens. Because Anonymous access is off for the Exchange virtual directory, I enter my ID/PW at the prompt. Then, nothing more happens at the...
