Is there a way to give a user access to other's Outlook Calenders without giving them access to full mailbox rights under AD properties?

I am trying to give a user read only permissions to 5 other user Outlook Calenders.  The only way I know how to do this is through AD Properties, Advanced Exchange, Mailbox Rights.

I also know that you can do this by going to each of the 5 individuals, and adding the user under permissions for their calender. (This will be difficult since users are not in the office all the time)

Can this be done through AD or any other way??

Not required to have users passwords. You need to have permissions on users mailboxes and could configure with your credentials. Yes, the same can be done from OWA as well provided as said above you need to have permissions on other users mailboxes
Configured 5 other users outlook and assign permissions
If you know the users passwords, you could configure your Outlook using multiple profiles to view each of the user's calendar, then set the appropriate permissions for them. When you're done, delete the Outlook profiles.

If you don't know the passwords, change the pswd in AD, do the above, then set their account to change their password the next time they login.

There may be, but I don't know of any way to accomplish this through OWA.
