We need to give the user Full access, for this, we need to use powershell

 

Go to the Start Menu on your computer and search for Powershell, you should get an app for Windows Powershell show up

This should launch a window that looks like this:
ec67eda53c5109e7e886be59eb2b03d324352b5f1796e5cc0b30210728898476abb4fcb3f5d77b40?t=e8e138e7e05dfed30996815ec0667bb9

Run the command:

$UserCredential = Get-Credential


This will give a login window. Enter in the email address and password for the account you set to manager
08915aa6eb53e867c3c35c45eb5ab18f28e309db4e0fb7f3b32e713be3e7af5e404897b689b41a14?t=7735f851b4e101ea7324995e40e21acc

Run the command:

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://owa.exchange2go.com/PowerShell/ -Authentication basic -Credential $UserCredential

and then:

Import-PSSession $Session -DisableNameChecking

which will log you into the server
Run the command:

Get-Mailbox

Which will give you a list of all your users.

Give the user Full access:

Get-Mailbox | Add-MailboxPermission -User MAILBOX -AccessRights Fullaccess -InheritanceType all

(where the command says "MAILBOX" replace with your user i.e "sales")


Once this is done, you would perform a cutover migration as detailed at https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/mailbox-migration/cutover-migration-to-office-365 , starting from Step 2: Connect Microsoft 365 or Office 365 to your email system and using the Account with privileges:, namely the administrator user you created above.
