Default Setting Permissions in Microsoft Exchange 2007

Before I get in to this I have to say, I cannot stand Exchange 2007. Life is complicated enough, but this version of Exchange gets to me and almost anyone I speak to who has implemented it (thankfully I've yet to internally)!!

I've come across quite a bit of confusion from people I talk to when it comes to setting permissions in Exchange 2007, so I've designed this thread around how to set the required permissions for a BESAdmin account in Exchange 2007. Deep breath.....

Exchange View Only Administrator role

To set the Exchange View Only Administrator role, type the following line from a command prompt, then press ENTER:

Quote:
add-exchangeadministrator -role ViewOnlyAdmin
where is the name of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server service account (for example, BESAdmin).

To check the Exchange View-Only Administrator role, type the following line from a command prompt, then press ENTER:

Quote:
get-exchangeadministrator | Format-List
The service account should be displayed with a ViewOnlyAdmin role.


Send As, Receive As, Administer Information Store permissions

To set the Send As, Receive As, and Administer Information Store permissions, type the following line from a command prompt, then press ENTER:

Quote:
get-mailboxserver | add-adpermission -user -accessrights ExtendedRight -extendedrights Send-As, Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin
To check the Send As, Receive As, and Administer Information Store permissions, type the following line from a command prompt, then press ENTER:
Quote:
get-mailboxserver | get-ADpermission -user | Format-List
where is the name of the Microsoft Exchange 2007 Server, and is the name of the ‘BESAdmin’ account

Hi. I followed the cocumentation for setting the "Send As" Permissions for the BESAdmin account, but when I check it only lists the recieve-as and administrator store information. Is there something else I need to do?

Thanks - I managed to get it to work properly. However, I must have really messed something up when I installed BES Express on SBS 2008 (running Exchange 2007). Basically I think it *almost* have it working, but there's some sort if permissions setting I don't have correct. When I log in as administrator, and I open the BlackBerry Server Configuration application, I can select Edit MAPI Profle and I get the correct name (BESAdmin). However, I simply cannot run the IEMS.exe tool - I get the following:

If I log in as administrator, I get to select the Profile (BlackBerryServer); then I get the following: OpenMsgStore() for this profile failed (8004011d)

If I log in as a user with domain admin rights and a valid Exchange mailbox, I get a Microsoft Outlook Setup Wizard. I don't know why this keeps popping up?

I apologize if this is answered somewhere else, but I've spent days trying to read the documentation, searching forums, and I just cannot get past this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Mike

You need to login as the BlackBerry service account.
