Sharing access on Outlook98/Exchange

By BPorter ·
We recently converted from Groupwise to Outlook. We use to be able to 'proxy' from one account to another - ie secretary could get into boss's account to book appts, check mail, etc.

I suspect this is doable in Outlook/Exchange - any direction?
TIA

First you need to grant the Secretary rights to the boss's email account. You can do this by logging into the boss's Outlook client and selecting Tools / Options / Delegates. In here you can select the type of access you wish for each user.

Once you do this, you can go to the Secretary's Outlook and open the Boss's account by selecting File / Open / Other User's Folder. Here you can specify the Inbox, Calendar etc.

If the sec needs a more persistant connection to the bosses mailbox open the sec's Outlook then Tools/Services, highlight Microsoft Exchange Server, click Properties, click on Advanced tab, Add bosses mailbox to the additional mailboxes list.

Nowsec will have access to bosses mailbox whenever Outlook is opened.

Forgot to add that this is after you set the permissions as stated in the previous reply.
