Out of Office assistant on an additional mailbox

I've got an ex-employee whose supervisor would like to keep his mailbox open but with an Out of Office reply that lets the customer know who to contact in his place.  

Is there a way to do this without logging into the ex-employees profile and setting it that way?  I have full rights to his mailbox.

Windows XP Pro running Outlook 2003 Pro using an Exchange Server 2000.

You can do this using Web Access. Open http://yourserver/exchange/mailboxname, login with the user account of the owner and then goto options, there you can set the Out of office option and a message.

You can do this by creating a new profile for Outlook.  Open Mail in Control Panel.  Select Show Profiles.  In the setup wizard choose the e-mail account you want to change the setting for.  When you are in Outlook you will now be changing settings for ths user.
