We currently have an exchange server setup at work and need to add a large number of users which will all share the same mailbox rights. We currently have around 17 permissions which must be added to each new user and we need a way to simplify the process or copy rights between two users. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

One way to do this would be to create a template user account and set the permissions on this user account. When you create new "real" user accounts simply copy the template user.

Well if what your saying is to essentially create the user via the copy function, this is basically what I have been doing but the mailbox rights have not been copying in this process. – Ward May 10 '10 at 3:32
