How to I accessing user accounts

SBS 2007 has recently been installed into the network.  Need to configure the office manager to have access to all user emails.  How do I configure her outlook to access the end user emails versus having to walk around to each user and get on their outlook.

So you have Exchange 2007 and you need to delegate access to a person to people to manage/view all mailboxes?

In the Exchange Management Console, right click on a user account, choose 'Full Access Permissions' and add the office manager.  If there are a lot of users you can use the Exchange Powershell to delegate permissions using a command like: Add-MailboxPermission "Mailbox" -User "Trusted User" -AccessRights FullAccess

This way you don't have to add the person individually.

For this person to actually view the emails they'd have to add the mailbox in outlook under Tools->Account Settings->More Settings->Advanced and type in the username for each mailbox.  I wouldn't suggest adding all of them. Perhaps you should show him/her how to do this and they can add/remove users at their leisure.

Alternatively, you can set up journaling to record all the emails of the users.  You can set a new account for journaling and then give access to this mailbox to the office manager.  Enclosed below is a link to a pretty good guide for setting this up.
