Elevation of Exchange admin privilege Alerts

Does anyone else get these alerts?  From what I have been able to gather thus far, this BOXServiceAccount is used by Microsoft for management of the mailboxes and exchange servers.  What I haven't figured out is whether I should be concerned about these or what it means for our security footprint.

It looks like some server workflow, I'm almost certain we should not be getting such events. Reports it on the UPP network?

I opened a support case, and was basically told it was safe to ignore since it is a back-end process. Unfortunately no additional details.

Do you get any ideas about this at that time?

I already configured this privilege?
