How to setup Exchange folder permissions for an other user.

I have an Exchange 2007 server and Outlook 2000 and 2007 clients.  I have a user who wants to make certain mail folders available to a secretary, but he doesn’t want anyone to see email he hasn’t filed in his inbox.  In a test I created a new folder at the same level as the inbox and granted access to the secretary for this folder.  When I look at the Administrative tab of the Properties window the “this folder is available to:” section is grayed out.  I have also granted the secretary access at the top/mailbox level.  See just gets the cannot display folder error message.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

So you shared the Mailbox via Outlook client, is what it sounds like. You need to also grant permissions to the user via Active Directory.
select the user->right click, properties->exchange advance->mailbox rights
