schlitz-420 -> Inheriting Permissions (24.May2007 10:31:47 AM)

I gave myself access to to all of the user's mailboxes when trying to sort out DST issues and now when I try to remove the access from each user I get the message:

You cannot remove "User (" because thi object is inheriting permissions from it's parent.  To remove "User (," you must preven this object from inheriting permissions.  Turn off the option for inheriting permissions, and then try removing "User (" again.

What is the best way to remove my permissions without causing any other problems?  Where do I turn off the inheritable permissions so it does not have a negative effect on any of the services Exchange provides to my users (public folders, sharing)?  Thank you very much for your help!

Do you recall at what level you granted yourself the permissions?  That is where you need to remove them.  If you can't remember, keep going up levels until you either don't see the permission or you find the one that isn't inherited from a higher level.

Yes, turning off inheritable permissions is going to bite you in the rear.  For your own sanity, don't do it.

"How to Grant Your Administrative Logon Account Temporary Rights to Read All Mailboxes in an Exchange Database "
