Add a Role to an Assignment Policy

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

If you want to enable users to manage a feature on their mailboxes, you can add a management role to the management role assignment policy they're assigned to. This is done by creating a management role assignment between the role and the assignment policy. If more than one user is assigned an assignment policy, all the users gain the ability to manage that feature. For more information about assignment policies and management role assignments in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, see the following topics:
