    Greetings, cclmotors.

    You can grant a user access to as many mailboxes as you want and they can open them all simultaneously.  However, any messages sent or actions taken by that user in mailboxes other than their own will be shows as "on behalf of" the other mailbox owner.  There is no way I know of to get around that other than creating separate profiles and logging in as that other profile.

    With your generic AD user created and has been giving full mailbox access go into:
    Control Panel (on the cleint PC)
    Show Profiles
    Then create your new profiles.

    You can then set Outlook to ask you which profile you want to use.
