Groupmailbox with many delegates

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello all,

I have an issue with a mailbox that has 206 delegates. On the archive (using permissionbrowser) I see many, but not all. This results in not all delegates having access to the archive of that groupmailbox.

I believe I have seen this before (ie a limit on the amount of delegates) but I cannot find related information. If anyone knows if there is a limit, please let me know.

I was thinking to create a group that has these 206 people in it, and then assigning the group the necessary delegation rights on the mailbox. As far as I know there are no caveats (as long as it is not a group in a group in a group), but I am not sure.

Delegating the group should work as far as I know. Can any of you confirm this?

gertjan, as i was reading your post the first thing that came to mind was why are there 206 individuals assigned permissions? that would be much more efficient using a group. so yes, i would recommend using a group. and if they dont want to change it from the mailbox side, you can easily add the group to the archive permissions.

Don't get me started :-)

Good point on the group though. I'll check that.

Thank you, Gertjan, MCSE, MCITP,MCTS, SCS, STS
