Setting Outlook 2000 Delegates
Posted on 2004-08-25
There is a mailbox that an HR employee uses (careers). She is going on vacation and would like to have another HR employee to read the mail in this box. Seems simple enough but it is causing me endless headaches...
I have logged in as careers and set the second employee as a delegate with full author permissions to everything. I go to this user's desk and add the mailbox under the services > advanced. It adds the mailbox, but when you click on it, it says cannot display folder.
Stranger still is that there is no permissions set at all for the original user who normally reads this mail. How is she reading this mail? And why can't this second person read it?
The mailbox is working fine, I can view it with my own account but I am an admin. We are using Exchange 5.5 and the clients are Outlook 2000.
Any ideas would be appreciated!
