Auto Reply - Give Access to Email - Terminated Employee

I've looked around for answers, but I have a unique situation.
I'm in New Mexico, The issue is in New York on a different domain.
We acquired a company, the domain hasn't been added to our "forest"
This weekend the President was let go, the computer he was on, was his personal.
I have logged onto the server in NY and changed his password, he has no access to email/VPN/etc...

But I am needing to set an AutoReply (for new contact) on his email - is this possible through Exchange 2007?

Lastly, I have went in and given new replacement access to old president's email, the thing is I'm not quite sure which permission is needed, currently the person is setup as network administrator and they still are not able to view the email?

Thanks

1) Set his OOO message by logging directly into his webmail and setting it through options.  It's the easiest way to do it by far.

2) Open the Exchange Mgmt console on the 2007 exchange server and under mailbox management, find his mailbox, right click, select Manage Full Access Permissions, and then add the users who need it with the green plus sign, then click the manage button in the lower right.  Wait 5 minutes and voila they should have full read access.

That did the trick...thank you. I'm still puzzled why I didn't think of the webmail out of office...was too concerned about the outlook on his computer out of office reply. One track mind.

Thank you...
