Use the following procedure to grant access to Exchange 2000 or an Exchange 2003 mailboxes found on a specific mailbox store:

Note: You must have the appropriate Exchange administrative permissions to do so.

  1. Start Exchange System Manager.

  3. In the Properties window go to the Security tab.

  5. Be sure that the user or group is selected in the Name box.
  6. In the Permissions list, click Allow next to Full Control, and then click OK.

    Note: Make sure there is no Deny checkbox selected next to the Send As and Receive As permissions.

  7. Click Ok all the way out.

  1. Hi,
    I am using MAPI to collect all mailbox info. To achieve this, I am creating a profile with a user account who is having Exchange View only permissions and he is a domian admin also. I followed above steps to give store admin privilages. But still my code fails at HrOpenExchangePrivateStore. Any idea why this is so?
    you can reply back to directly.
