Add Exchange mail box disabling the auto mapping in outlook.

Outlook 2010 has this cool feature that auto maps the mailboxes that you have full access to. But some times you want to have access to everyone email but not have them taking up space on your outlook.


This command will add full access for to everyone but the Admin mail box. 

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited -Filter {(RecipientTypeDetails -eq 'UserMailbox') -and (Alias -ne 'Admin')} | Add-MailboxPermission -User -AccessRights fullaccess -InheritanceType all -AutoMapping:$false
And This command will add to the accounts mailbox.
Add-MailboxPermission -Identity Accounts -User -AccessRight FullAccess -InheritanceType All -Automapping $false

Exchange 2010 Missing Server configuration in EMC?

I was using outlook locally on a Exchange server. (i know not a good idea)  Anyway if you are going to use it to access a mail box DON’T click the remember password. If not next time you log in to the Exchange Management Console it will log on with those credentials and you wont be able to manage your server.  It is easy fixed tho. Just go in to the control panel -> Credential Manager find the password you saved a click remove from vault.

Outlook still autodiscovering BPOS after moving off it.

We moved a customer from BPOS (Telstra Hosted Exchange) to our own managed exchange. After hours of backing up mail boxes and restoring (due to the bpos platform being slow) and reseting up the profiles on the local pc i found the autodiscover kept prompting for a username and password for the bpos servers. ( after some looking i found this link Revert Autodiscover Changes for Exchange Online

It has these steps

To revert Autodiscover changes for Exchange Online

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Run dialog box, type regedit, and then click OK.
In Registry Editor, go to the following registry key:
Delete the following Autodiscover entries:
Exit Registry Editor.
Restart Windows for the changes to take effect.


After doing all this it still didn’t work. Same problem. Then after looking at the reg files that that BPOS installer runs i found that it puts a entry in

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice12.0OutlookAutoDiscoverdomainname = =”C:DOCUME~1…outlook-autodiscovery.xml” remove this reboot and everything should be good to go.


you can also clean up the C:Users%username%AppDataLocalMicrosoftSign InConfigusername@domain


If you have issues with not being able to send to internal email’s try outlook /cleanautocompletecache
