INTRODUCTION

This article discusses a hotfix that you can use to change the behavior of the Full Mailbox Access permission in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server.

More information

Currently, a user who has the Full Mailbox Access permission to a mailbox can send an e-mail message as the mailbox owner. This behavior occurs because the Send As permission is implicitly included in the Full Mailbox Access permission.

Microsoft has created a hotfix to change the default behavior of the Full Mailbox Access permission. After you apply this hotfix, you can set the Full Mailbox Access permission for a user without also setting the Send As permission.

Note This change is in Exchange 2000 Server Service Pack 3 (SP3) when you use Store.exe version 6619.4 or a later version of Store.exe.
