Permission for mailbox

By bbae ·
There are two Ex2k server, mail1 & mail2. I want to give a user1 sitting on mail1 to be able to access user2 mailbox to check her emails in user1's outlook. Could you please tell me how to do this?
Thanks.

Create a custom recepeint in mail2 with email address of user1.
Enable mail-forwarding on user2 with this custom recepeint and keep a copy for user2 on mail2.
A copy of all user2 mails will be dropped in to user1. you can create a Rule on user1 mailbox to move all mails addressed to user2 in a custom folder, so as to ease sorting process.
This is one way of workaround.

you have to set the permissions on the mailbox of user2 so user1 can access it.
I can tell only from exchange 5.5 now. There is is permission tab on the mailbox (else check the view to see if it's set to display the permissions tab).
Then add the additional user to that mailbox and set what she may do (send as, custom, etc).

Providing both Ex2K boxes are in the same domain, you either grant permissions via active directory users and computers/properities of user, select Exchange Advanced tab, then select Mailbox Rights and add the user with appropriate permissions to the mailbox.
Or, secondly, get the user2 to grant the other user permissions from their own mailbox via either the use of the delegates tab (under tools/options) or just grant permissions on each level of the mailbox folders (right click on folder and select properties/permissions). This can be accomplished by the user/owner of the mailbox.
After changes have propagated thoughout the domain, have the user1 connect to the other mailbox by either:
1. Opening outlook and selecting 'File - open - other user's folder', or
2. Open outlook, select 'Tools - Services - highlight exchange server and select properties, click the Advanced tab then click Add additional mailbox. Type in mailbox name and say ok.
Either way should give you access to the other users mailbox.
Hope this helps in a small way.
