I am trying to set up a user so that he can have Exchange Administration priviledges, but the only user that I have set up that can administer Exchange is the Administrator account, any an all help would be great

What groups does the administrator account have in user manager?

or you can go into the required user in exchange admins and go to the permissions tab and select the tick bixes required on the right handside at the bottom

If you assign the user's account with Permissions Admin rights at the Exchange organization, site and/or server levels (depending on how much power you want to grant them), s/he will be able to do most everyday admin tasks.

It is much better to create a global group in "User manager for domain" named "Exchange Admins", then in Exchange administrator s/w choose properties of a Site or a server and add the group with "Permission Admins".
Now every user that belong to "Exchange Admins" NT group will be Exchnage admininstrator.  To add more Exchange admins just add them to the NT group and don't forget to ask the user to logoff and logon again to get the new permissions.

I think this totally depends on the granularity of the permissions you wish to grant.  You may not want a certain admin to have permissions to mess with recipients of a particular server, but not have rights to to higher level tasks such as move mailboxes from one site to the other, or make connectors or change routing between connectors.  If you have one global group, then you have no control over this stuff.  It's all or nothing.

If you have a very simple setup like I do right now, with one site, server, very few connectors and such, then what you suggest works better.  But, if you have a more complex Exchange organization, then you might want to restrict admin priviledges accordingly.
