Client permissions can be set in ESM for public folders, not for mailbox items, as you have no access from ESM or AD to the substructure of the mailbox. There maybe a few tools, which can be used to directly set permissions in the store (like mdbvu32), but these tools are really hardcore tools, which are also able to easily destroy the information store.

So, the better iedea is, as long as you are not really aware of the mailbox store structure, to touch every client or to movce such content into a public folder.
You can also create an account which will have "full mailbox access" rights on each and every mailbox in your company. and then you can configure outlook profile of the requesting user(open user's mailbox using this special account created) from your own workstation and set the permissions. You wont have to go to the users desk everytime.

Can't be done through ESM.
However with a combination of tools, it can be done server side.

I have the process documented on my web site: http://www.amset.info/exchange/folderpermissions.asp

Just another tool, which can be used to set permissions an mailboxes and mailboxitems


But you should also know what you do here...
Don't worry about the title of the tool, you can connect to public folders as well as to a single mailbox as well as to all mailboxes (if you have permissions of course).

Make sure, this tool runs from a local drive, not from the network!!!
