Limiting shared folders in outlook 2003

We have an outlook 2003 server with outlook 2003 clients.  Our CFO wanted the executive secretary to have access to his folders in outlook, so I enabled sharing and set the secretary up specifically on the share.  However, now anyone can see his folders!!  How do I set a share up so that only  defined individuals have access to the share?

OK, I assume we are talking about an Exchange Mailbox, is that correct?

If you go to the folder list, right click on "Mailbox - UserName" and choose propterties and then permissions tab. Sounds like you have "everyone" set with permission to the mailbox.

ps just remove any group accounts that are giving everyone access.

It is an Exchange mailbox and the default permissions are "none" for anonymous" and guest.  The group "Everyone" is not listed.  Curiously, even for those mailboxes where NO SHARE has been enabled, even these (i.e., ALL) mailboxes are visible as though "SHARED".

Are you checking the individual folders in the mailbox as well as the mailbox itself ? Same general prodecure: right click, properties, permissions.

Can you describe a little more what you mean by this statement "even for those mailboxes where NO SHARE has been enabled".  Describe how that is differenet than the CFO situation please.  I'm not sure what you mean by that.

When you say you enabled sharing, are you talking about going to the permission tab for the CFO's mailbox (mentioned above), added the asst's name, and gave appropriate permission?

Additionally, everyone can access any of his folders?  Or just his calendar for example?

OK, sorry, now that I re-read that I think I got it, sorry it's early in the morning.  You are saying that everyone can see everyone else's mailbox, regardless of any permissions that may have been assigned, right?

Sounds like this doesn't have anything to do with sharing the CFO's callendar with their asst.  More likely the everyone group is inheriting permission to all mailboxes, and it just wasn't noticed previously.  See this article:
