Need to give a user permission to view all of another user's Outlook 2010 emails.

Exchange Server 2010 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are being used in this environment.

What is the easiest way to give  a user permission to view all of another user's Outlook 2010 emails through the Exchange Server and Active Directory?

This needs to be done discretely so that the user whose emails will be read won't know anything about this.

First off then, make sure that your state law covers you for snooping on an employees email and that you do not break any privacy laws. You could find yourself in a whole heap of something if you do this and they find out and you are not inside the law.

You really should read this BEFORE you spy on every email an employee sends....

Neilsr makes an excellent point.  Make sure you have a policy in place and the employees know about it.
