shared mailbox Office 365 – cannot expand folder both in OWA and Outlook

There is a bud in the GUI of Office 365 when delegating full permission to a user for shared mailbox.

Even if you give the correct permission you cannot expand the mailbox.

The fix is to remove and readd the permission with these powershell comamnds:

To Add

Add-MailboxPermission -Identity JDoe -User ‘testuser22’ -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All -AutoMapping $false

To Remove

Remove-MailboxPermission -Identity JDoe -User ‘testuser22’ -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All

How to remove system mailboxes and arbitration / federated mailboxes from last Exchange 2010 / 2013

This is just a plain copy paste for a note for myself.

please visit http://msexchangeguru.com/2013/01/02/exchange-2013-error/ which is the source for this paste

To resolve this, we need to move or disable the arbitration mailboxes on the server and remove the mailbox database manually.

You need to also ensure you do not have any user mailboxes in the database you are trying to get rid of.

Start Exchange Management Shell and type the command to display mailboxes in the whole forest and not just the domain you are logged into:

[PS] C:Windowssystem32>$AdminSessionADSettings.ViewEntireForest=$True

[PS] C:Windowssystem32>Get-MailboxDatabase -Server nbc-d-mbx02

Name Server Recovery ReplicationType

—- —— ——– —————

Database15         NBC-D-MBX02 False None

[PS] C:Windowssystem32>Get-MailboxDatabase “nbc-d-mbx02Database15” | Get-Mailbox

Now that you have the list of all mailboxes in the exchange database, move it to a different server

To work around the Arbitration mailbox issue, let’s find out the list of all Arbitration mailboxes

[PS] C:Windowssystem32>Get-Mailbox -Arbitration |ft Name, Servername

Name ServerName

—- ———-

SystemMailbox{1f05a927-0695-4348-bb62-d2369dcb23d5} nbc-d-mbx01

FederatedEmail.4c1f4d8b-8179-4148-93bf-00a95fa1e042 nbc-d-mbx01

SystemMailbox{e0dc1c29-89c3-4034-b678-e6c29d823ed9} nbc-d-mbx02

SystemMailbox{bb558c35-97f1-4cb9-8ff7-d53741dc928c} nbc-d-mbx02

Migration.8f3e7716-2011-43e4-96b1-aba62d229136 nbc-d-mbx02

Now will disable all of those since I do not have a different server to move them to.

[PS] C:Windowssystem32>Disable-Mailbox “SystemMailbox{e0dc1c29-89c3-4034-b678-e6c29d823ed9}” -Arbitration -DisableLastArbitrationMailboxAllowed

Disabling mailbox “SystemMailbox{e0dc1c29-89c3-4034-b678-e6c29d823ed9}” will remove the Exchange properties from the Active Directory user object and mark the mailbox in the database for removal. If the mailbox has an archive or remote archive, the archive will also be marked for removal. In the case of remote archives, this action is permanent. You can’t reconnect this user to the remote archive again.
