Hi all
I am using exchange server 2003 ent edition and the clients use outlook 2003.  For one of the user I try to open more than one mailbox and I get:
-Unable to display the folder, outlook could not access the specified folder location.  Microsoft suggests to add the everyone group in the AD for exchange.  That I can do in a while,  now my next question is:
-This way any person on my domain can open anyone else's mailbox without user name or password?  Is it secured?  How to make it so that person with all rights and permissions like admins only can add more than one mailboxes for a required person's mail?.
THanks

no you dont add the everyone group-you just add the users you want to view the mailbox through AD

Sorry I misinterpret.
Whenever I try to open an additional mailbox for a user it gives me 'Unable to display the folder, outlook could not access the specified folder location' for this particular message there is an article on microsoft suggesting some points to be done in AD.  I will do them later on.
this is my question:
-any user on the domain using outlook 2003 can open any one else's mailboxes?  If yes, Is't it a security risk? i.e when you add another mailbox it does not ask you any username or password etc.

no one should be allowed to view anothers mailbox unless they are given permissions to do so -yes it is a security risk
did you check your permissions in AD-exchange advanced -mailbox rights
ive seen something before about the cause of your problem -maybe someone will be able to shed more light on it
check permissions in ESM-mailbox store properties-security also
how are you creating mailboxes?

I have to simply add the user under exchange advanced, and I could open the folders as well.
