adding a mailbox to outlook

hi all

i worked out how to do this, i was trying to add someone elses mailbox to mine for when they are away for a few weeks. i added their mailbox to mine by properties on my name in the outlook, advanced, advanced then searched for their name.

i couldnt open the mailbox after that because of a security issue. i went onto the server and to the users account and in the exchange advanced tab onto mailbox rights and added myself. the only problem was it took till this morning to take effect. i was able to get to the mails this morning.

why did it take so long to take effect and is this the only way of doing this, not sure if im going the long way around

whats the easiest way to find out the size of the ad? still new to exchange
My question was how many domains are in the forest?. If it is single domain controller with exchange servers means it should not take much time. And also how many users n computers are existing in AD?
