How do I Setup Delegate Access to Multiple Users in Outlook/Exchange 2003

Posted on 2009-02-23

I have one user who needs to have Delegate Access to several other user's calendars in order to setup and edit appointments for them. I know you can do it from each user's computer, but this is problematic since they are on the road a lot with their laptops. Is there a way to set this up from within Exchange?

    If you are set as an exchange admin you can simply create an outlook profile on your machine as that user. Then you can go in and delegate the permissions.

    The only thing you may need to do is grant yourself full mailbox access before creating their outlook profile on your computer. I do this all the time and it works well.

    Just reread my answer and it might not be the clearest so.

    In ADUC go to the user who you need to delegate, double click their user account and go to exchange adavanced, mailbox rights. Add yourself with full control and repeat with the other users.

    Then from your machine go to control panel mail and add in the three profiles for the users you want to delegate. You should now be able to log into their email accounts and go through the delegation steps.

    The final step is opening the shared calendar on the secretary/admin's computer.
