Archive mailbox issue

Email It to Me Print this Page
Symptoms The Non-owner Mailbox Access Reporter shows that users access their own mailboxes.
Cause In Exchange 2010 there is a Mailbox Archive option that creates a linked mailbox with the same name as the user's own mailbox. The users is not an owner of that linked archive mailbox. Each time the user runs Outlook, it reads the archive mailbox content(performs non-owner access).
Resolution In order to omit such events please perform the following steps:

  1. On the Exchange server, run the Exchange Management Shell and perform the following cmdlet "Get-Mailbox | %{$mailboxstring = ""; $mailboxstring+= "%domain name%\";$mailboxstring+=$_.samaccountname;$mailboxstring+= "="; $mailboxstring+=$_.emailaddresses[0].addressstring; echo $mailboxstring >> C:\usermailboxesomitlist.txt}" (without quotes and replace the %domain name% with your domain name).
  2. Copy the usermailboxesomitlist.txt from the Exchange server to the Non-owner Mailbox Access Reporter home folder.
NOTE: If you create a new user with mailbox, you should add it to the existing usermailboxesomitlist.txt file located at the Non-owner Mailbox Access Reporter home folder using the following format: domain\username=mailbox (E.g.: CORP\jsmith=jsmith@corp.com).
