Determine if a user has Elevated/Administrative Privileges in Exchange via PowerShell

Scenario: You want to clean up rights in Exchange, but you want to verify if a specific account has any elevated/administrative Exchange privilege.

Solution: Run the following command line via Exchange PowerShell:

get-managementroleassignment -roleassignee  steve

The results will give you all permissions via role in Exchange.  If its a standard mailbox with no elevated permissions, you will see a bunch of Default Roles for the RoleAssigneeName.  Any elevated privilege will also be listed as well.
