Is it possible to give a user access to another users mailbox but not just the inbox, all of the folders and subfolders?  I need to give the company director full access to every member of staffs mailboxes so he can open them on his computer in outlook as and when he needs.

Do you have an IT policy in place that states that mail will be monitored by management and that the users have agreed to / signed to say they accept the policy?

Not sure how to do this on a global basis but the following can be run from the Exchange Management Shell for a single mailbox:

Add-ADPermission "Mailbox" -User "Domain\User" -Extendedrights "Send As"

To do this globally I would imagine the following might work:

Get-Mailbox | Add-ADPermission -User "Domain\User" -Extendedrights "Send As"

Can you not do it via the EMC?

Yes - how many users do you have?  If you have loads - it will get very tedious.

There are about 20 users in total, so it shouldn't be too tedious, besides I love a GUI lol!

Oh well - with 20 - that's a breeze.  You could use Notepad to copy / paste the EMS command and then modify it to add a line for each user and then copy paste the whole lot into the EMS and get the job done in one go!
