Can Sharepoint Enterprise Search server search Exchange mailbox? It's not searching other user's mailbox, but the user's own. When a user submits a query, Sharepoint knows the user's identity. Can it include the user's email messages in a specified Exchange server in the search result? Any connector for that?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Typically access to search other mailboxes besides your own is only granted to exchange admins. If you are not an exchange admin Sharepoint is not going to grant you that access level. If you need to search other mailboxes for some reason you are going to need permissions to do so. Yes all mailboxes on the exchange server belong to the organization, however most organizations do not search people’s mailboxes without permission from HR first.

    So how can we do that if we have the required permissions? No problem with searching public folders but how can we crawl users mailboxes or the mailboxes we have permission to acces by Sharepoint Enterprise Search server? Do we need custom connectors or dows search server has it out-of-box?
