Delete & Forward mailbox

What are the best practice for those tasks?

* Delete a SBS user with mailbox and set that mailbox as forward to an admin for that employee group?

* Set XX adresses as aliases for one sbs-user (so far I use exchange e-mailadresses view in sbs modify user dialog).

* Make a specific users mailbox available to another users mailbox. In this case is specifically important that the managing user gets this mailbox on a very simple way. I can set the permission but the user should not need to add that mailbox through the outlook exchange e-mail settings. It's too complicated because this task should be done several times a week.

You can't delete a mailbox and forward it. One or the other.

As for the last two, there are no other ways of doing what you want to do. Email addresses are only added through the management tools, and opening additional mailboxes is only done through Outlook.

Considering that the three points were not related, you would find it more efficient to open separate question for each, otherwise it becomes confusing.
