Creating a Central User to Access Mailboxes

With MailStore, some or all mailboxes of an Exchange server can be archived in a single step. All necessary preparations, such as creating MailStore users, can be made automatically. The archiving process can be executed manually or automatically according to a schedule.

Before the archiving process can be set up in MailStore, a user with Impersonation rights to all mailboxes to be archived has to be created.

The following prerequisites are required to configure Exchange Impersonation:

  • Administrative credentials for a computer that is running Exchange 2010 that has the Client Access server role installed
  • Domain Administrator credentials

All following commands can be executed from the Microsoft Exchange Management Shell.

Add access rights

 New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Name:"MailStore Impersonation" `
 -Role:ApplicationImpersonation -User:serviceAccount

serviceAccount is the user account you want to use in UPN notation. Please take care that this user is not a member of an Exchange or Windows administrative group.

Check access rights

 Get-ManagementRoleAssignment -Role:ApplicationImpersonation ' 
 -RoleAssigneeType:User | Format-List *

 Get-ManagementRoleAssignment -Identity:"MailStore Impersonation" ' 
 | Format-List *

Remove access rights

 Remove-ManagementRoleAssignment "MailStore Impersonation"
