Managing Recipient Settings

Grant or Deny Permissions for a Mailbox-Enabled User

You can grant or deny mailbox permissions for an individual mailbox-enabled user. If you are changing mailbox permissions for a mailbox-enabled user and notice that both the Allow and Deny check boxes are not selected for a permission, then the user may have obtained the permission through group membership. If a check box is shaded, the permission is inherited and must be changed at the level where the permission was set. If the user did not inherit the permission, then the permissions is implicitely denied.

To grant or deny mailbox permissions:

  1. Start Active Directory Users and Computers
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
  2. In Active Directory Users and Computers, on the View menu, click Advanced Features.
  3. In the console tree, expand the Windows 2000 domain. Double-click Users, or double-click the node that contains the recipient information you want to modify.
  4. In the details pane, double-click the mailbox-enabled user whose permissions you are changing.
  5. On the Exchange Advanced tab, click on Mailbox Rights.
  6. In the Permissions dialog box, in Name, select SELF.
  7. Select either the Allow or Deny check box next to the permission you are changing.
