If you want full mailbox access then it will have to be Powershell.

add-mailboxpermission "User Name" -accessRights FullAccess -user domain\user2

Where user2 is the name of the user who needs permissions and "User Name" is the name of the mailbox that permission is being set on.

Note that doesn't allow the user to send as that mailbox, to do that you need to grant Send As:

Add-ADPermission "User Name" -User "domain\user2" -Extendedrights "Send As"

Another option would be to grant the permissions using PowerGui - http://www.powergui.org

Also note that it isn't take effect immediately, you may have to wait a few hours before access is granted.
