Restrict Delete Access to Another Users' Email but Give Read/Write Access

I have a client running SBS2003.  I have created a "JobEmail" user account.  I can give every user access to the JobEmail account so they can access it while using Outlook with their personal email and can copy emails to and from the JobEmail account. I am trying to find a way to give them access to read and write to the JioobEMail account, but not be able to delete emails from that account.  Does anyone know how to do that?

Sure, if you have a look at the permissions for each folder in the JobEmail mailbox (e.g. inbox) you can assign other users the rights to only delete their own email modifications and not those of other users. HTH.

If the user has full mailbox access then they can do what they like with the mail. You would have to remove that permission then set permissions on each folder. Then you would have to open the folder in Outlook.

It may be a better option to use a public folder instead.

A public folder is working well for this.  Thank you for your help.
