This article describes the tool that is used to deny Send As permissions and Receive As permissions for administrators in Microsoft Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration 4.5.
When you deploy Microsoft Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration, a security group that is named CSRAdmins and a security group that is named Admins are created for each hosted organization. If you create these organizations in Hosted Messaging and Collaboration 4.5, these groups are denied Send As permissions and Receive As permissions in Active Directory. However, if the groups were created in earlier versions of Hosted Messaging and Collaboration, the groups are not denied Send As permissions and Receive As permissions.
A supported feature that modifies the default behavior of the product is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to modify the behavior that this article describes. Apply it only to systems that specifically require it. This feature may receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by the lack of this feature, we recommend that you wait for the next update rollup for the Hosted Exchange services in Microsoft Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration 4.5 that contains this feature.
To obtain this feature immediately, download the feature by following the instructions later in this article or contact Microsoft Product Support Services.
