How to create a Service Account with full access to all mailboxes on Exchange Server 2007 mailboxstore?

We can use following Exchange PowerShell cmdlet to grant a Service Account full access to all the mailboxes on Exchange Server 2007 mailboxstore, but do so only in accordance with your organization's security and privacy policies:

Get-mailboxserver <servername> | add-adpermission –user <service account> -accessrights GenericRead, 
GenericWrite -extendedrights Send-As, Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin

We need to modify <servername> as the Exchange Server name and <service account> as the account for which we would like to grant access.
