Are you refering to Exchange Server, or to the Exchange program supplied with Windows '95?

Access rights to a mailbox are set by the client, not the server.As you generic mailboxes do not have a specific user you will need to temporrily give them one. Create a new login under NT, and set this as the primary login for a generic mailbox, make sure that this new login has the right to login locally.Now log onto your server using this new logn and configure your exchange client to use the appropriate mailbox. You can then use the access permissions for the appropriate folders within the Mailbox to set who can view the folder.I am used to doing this using Outlook, in which case you right click on the folder and then choose properties followed by the permissions tab. I would imagine that Exchange Client works in a simmilar manner.Don't forget to assign permissions both to the mailbox and to the appropraite folders within it.Hope this helps.
