All current versions of Exchange 2013 (up to and including CU6) and Exchange Online (Office 365) contain a bug that can compromise the ability of companies to comply with discovery orders.

Reporting delegate access to Exchange mailboxes

The bug means that a user can remove items from a mailbox without copies being retained, even if the mailbox is under the control of a litigation or in-place hold. The good news is that the problem only appears with the Outlook Web App (OWA) client. It is not possible to exploit the retention hole in Outlook or any mobile client, including OWA for Devices. Obviously, anything that affects compliance is a serious issue. No one wants to be in front of a judge and admit that their email system is incapable of retaining all of the items specified in a discovery action, which is exactly the purpose of the immutability features incorporated into Exchange 2010 and enhanced in Exchange 2013.

Manage Folder Permission by using PowerShell

Technically, the ability to share a specific folder can be implemented for each of the user folders but, most of the time, the need to share a folder is related to the calendar and contact folder. By using the Folder Sharing, we can enable other users to get access to specific Outlook folders such as Calendar, Contacts and Tasks. The “Sharing folder” process, is based on two elements: the user (or group) that we want to share with them the folder, and the level of permission that we want to enable.

For example – by default, users can see only the free/busy time of other recipients. In case that we want to allow other users to get more information about the meeting, we can change the default permissions, and enable other users to see additional information about the meeting such as meeting Subject and location.

PowerShell Script to Report RBAC Role Group Membership. Role Based Access Control (RBAC) enables us to control the level of administrative control granted to IT staff and users in an Exchange organization. Exchange Server 2010 and later versions ship with a number of built-in role groups that we can make use of without having to create our own custom RBAC roles.

For example, Organization Management is a powerful group that grants almost complete administrative control over an Exchange organization, whereas Help Desk is a more limited role that only allows some recipient management tasks to be performed. Hopefully you’re already making good use of the built-in RBAC roles, or creating your own custom roles, instead of simply granting all of your IT staff Organization Management privileges.
