I need to set up out of office on another account without changing password and logging in as that user.

I'm aware that I can set up another outlook profile on a machine with the other user's credentials, then choose that profile to use. But I keep getting a login box when I do this. I've tried giving myself "full control" in active directory, to the user's account, but this doesn't work. Similar questions have talked about granting "mailbox rights". I can't find how to do this in ESM or Active Directory. Can anyone help?

thanks in advance

If you want to share a mailbox then the owner of the mailbox can grant you "send of behalf of" rights, if you want more than this then the Exchnage Administrator grant you "Send As" rights See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/fe474de0-b0e4-48a0-aec1-dcd9fcb4a53c.aspx

OK - we use "send as" rights quite regularly. But the only way this permission manifests itself into Outlook is by enabling the delegated user to type the assigned user's name into the 'from' field. I don't think it lets you actual open up an Outlook profile as them, with your login. You need to be in the Outlook application, as that user, to set up the out of office.

Thanks! that's it - for anyone's future reference, this is in Active Directory > Exchange Advanced > Mailbox Rights.
