Delegating Access in Exchange

Hey Guys, here's the scenario:
We have a Win SBS 2003 with 15 workstations, the boss asked me if it is possible to setup the system so he's able to read all 115 accounts's emails from his desk, is that something possible to do ?

Thanks!

I assume 115 was a typo and you meant 15? Yes, it is possible. First, you need to assign your boss permissions to these mailboxes. To do this, open each account in ADUC and go to the Exchange Advanced tab, click on Mailbox Rights, add your boss' account and give him the full mailbox access right. Now in his Outlook you can add the mailboxes by going to Tools->Options->Mail Setup tab then click e-mail accounts, click next, click change, click more setting, Advanced Tab then add each mailbox by clicking Add.

You boss will now have all 15 mailboxes in his Outlook folder list.

Jim -
Thanks for your reply, just to make sure, can you re-enforce how will he be able to see these emails ? You said "15 inboxes on his list", can we diferentiate who's inbox he's looking at ?
*Yes, that was a typo - 15
Sorry man, Exchange Newbie here ;-)

Each mailbox on the folder list will be named by display name. If you look at your current folder list, you will see your name at the top of the folder tree. There will be an addition 15 folder trees like this added below the main mailbox. BTW - you will need to make sure he is in Folder List view and not Mail view or the other mailboxes won't be shown.
