I have a hosted exchange 2010 and I am trying to setup the Send-As permission.

I am following http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb676368.aspx which basically describes the commands for achieving this.

I have user account aaa and bbb

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-mailbox -organization myorg -identity "aaa" Name Alias ServerName ProhibitSendQuota ---- ----- ---------- ----------------- aaa aaa mx1 4.95 GB (5,315,022,848 bytes)

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-mailbox -organization myorg-identity "bbb" Name Alias ServerName ProhibitSendQuota ---- ----- ---------- ----------------- bbb bbb mx1 4.95 GB (5,315,022,848 bytes)

Now, when I use the command below to give bbb permission to send-as aaa, I get the following error:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-mailbox -organization myorg -identity "aaa" | Add-ADPermission -Extended Rights "Send As" -user "bbb"

mx1/Microsoft Exchange Hosted Organizations/myorg/aaa wasn't found. Please make sure you've typed it correctly. + CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (:) [Add-ADPermission], ManagementObjectNotFoundException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : D2FD338,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.AddADPermission

The error message that 'aaa' was not found does not make sense because i just retrieved the mailbox in the previous commands.

I have tried using email addresses instead of alias but it does not work.

I found the answer: <br>Reading further ...i found the answer to be partly from technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff935839.aspx It appears that I have to use a different command which does the same thing: Add-RecipientPermission "Help Desk" -AccessRights SendAs -Trustee "Ayla Kol" but for my case, i had to specify the whole organisation etc Add-RecipientPermission "domain/Microsof Exchange Hosted Organizations/myOrg/Help Desk" -AccessRights SendAs -Trustee "Ayla Kol" :) –  Ravi Mar 30 '12 at 9:59
    
You can post that as an answer and mark it as accepted, we allow that around here. Though I think you need to wait 48 hours after the questions is posted to actually accept. It lets the system know this question has an answer, so won't recycle it periodically. –  sysadmin1138 Mar 30 '12 at 11:48

Reading further I found the answer to be partially from

It appears that I have to use a different command which does the same thing: Add-RecipientPermission "Help Desk" -AccessRights SendAs -Trustee "Ayla Kol"

but in my case, I had to specify the whole organisation etc

Add-RecipientPermission "domain/Microsof Exchange Hosted Organizations/myOrHelp Desk" -AccessRights SendAs -Trustee "Ayla Kol"
