    Deny User From Own Exchange Mailbox - Banning Students

    Hi,

    Our students will be on Exchange 2010 soon. I would like a way where i can drop students in an AD group and they will no longer be able to access there own mailbox. This will be used when they abuse the system or maybe other reasons. Deleting the mailbox isnt an option, they may miss important messages and may loose existing messages.

    All students live in there own database.

    I was wondering if anyone has got any options regarding this please?

    Thanks

    you can either setup a GPO which blocks access to outlook.exe for a specified group (and add students to that group). but they can still owa

    Or simply find kid in EMC and then disable mapi/owa/activsync connections under mailbox features

    Whenever we denied access to e-mail completely we had subjects complaining that e-mail was essential to the student's learning. I therefore set up a transport rule (Exchange 2007, but I'd be surprised if you couldn't do it on 2010). This rule states that anyone in the mailgroup "restricted users" can not send e-mail to anyone in the group "students" unless they cc in a member of the group "staff".

    I like this idea. What happens if students email themselves? Only asking as some students use email to get work into school?

    They can e-mail to their school e-mail address from their personal e-mail without restriction, other than our spam filter. We found that most e-mail misuse was students using e-mail to chat during lessons. This effectively put a stop to that. ICT lessons that required them to e-mail each other was fine, as the students get a pop up telling them they are a member of a restricted group and to cc their teacher into the message.

    If we had a 'Tip of the year' contest that would definately be a contender for top slot. Simple, effective, and ever so slightly evil. Well done.

    We only let students use Webmail so it's easy to disable the OWA feature on their mailbox and bam - no more email.

    However... the transport rule does sound a lot funnier

    In the Exchange 2010 EMC you could just remove NTAUTHORITY\SELF from the mailbox. Stops them logging into it with OWA and Outlook. Thats what we do here for any students found abusing emails.

    As silly as it sounds how long did you wait before trying it? Doesn't the recipiant cache thingy only update once every 3-4 hours?
