HOW TO: Assign SendAs right using Exchange shell

by Bharat Suneja on March 7, 2007

In Exchange Server 2007 (and Exchange 2010), recipients are managed from the Exchange Management Console (EMC) or Exchange Management Shell (aka the Shell). EMC does not have a Security tab for recipients.

You can still use Active Directory Users & Computers (ADUC) console to modify permissions on a recipient, as the documentation suggests ["How to Grant Send As Permissions for a Mailbox"] – and in this case, assign the Send As permission. Select the recipient in ADUC > select Properties > select the Security tab.

You can also use the Exchange Shell to quickly assign the SendAs right (for example, on a Distribution Group) to a user:

Add-AdPermission “Group Name” -user “User Name” -AccessRights
extendedright -ExtendedRights “send as”

Documentation for Add-ADPermission Exchange 2007 | Exchange 2010

Exchange Server 2007 SP1 includes a Manage Send As Permissions wizard, similar to the Full Mailbox Access wizard found in the RTM version.

  1. In EMC, right-click the recipient for which you want to manage Send As permission > select Manage Send As Permission

  2. In the Manage Send As Permission wizard, click the Add button to add the user that you want to assign the Send As permission to.
