One of the features introduced in Exchange 2010 SP1 which had mixed response was the auto mapping of mailboxes in Outlook, to which the user had full access to. Though it is a good feature, there was no control over it and some admins found it very frustrating, especially the ones that had users with too many shared mailboxes.
Microsoft has listened to the customer feedback and have put a parameter that can control the auto mapping.
As an admin, you can specify whether auto mapping should be enabled or not, when a user is given full access. The parameter is called “AutoMapping”. By default, auto mapping is enabled.
Run the following command to give a user full access without auto mapping.
Add-MailboxPermission –identity <user mailbox> –User <user who needs access> –AccessRights FullAccess –InheritanceType All –AutoMapping $false.
In Exchange 2010 SP2, the msExchDelegateListLink is updated properly when a user’s permission is removed, an issue that has been going on for a while. It worked for me with UR5 (read here), though some of my readers had difficulty with it.
With 2010 SP2, does it work properly for all of you?
