In Outlook, go to Tools->E-mail Accounts and modify your existing account settings.  Under Advanced, add the user's name under "Open these additional mailboxes".  Then, assuming you're an Exchange Administrator, you'll be able to open their inbox right within your own Outlook.  (Might be a little different as far as menu options in other versions than Outlook 2003)

To do it on your server, it will require a tool called ExMerge where you can export an Exchange box to a PST file, and then you can open it within your Outlook installation as well (go to File->Open->Outlook Data File)

ExMerge can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=429163ec-dcdf-47dc-96da-1c12d67327d5&displaylang=en

If you have permissions then going into control panel / mail / email accounts - higlhight your exchange account - go to change - more settings - and add the other user. Click out of everything and when you open outlook you will see their mailbox.

If you have permissions and (in outlook) just go to file open other users inbox you will just see the inbox.

But I am administering the server remotely. Can I use Outlook web access once I am on their server? How do I access this?
