Accessing multiple A/D accounts with Outlook / Exchange 2003

We have Exchange / Outlook.

A supervisors secretary wants to access the supes email in Outlook 2007 just as if she were sitting at supe's desk.  She doesn't want her own account changed.

Basically she wants to go into Outlook and choose whether she see's HER account or the SUPES.  She wants to make changes to the supes mail, calendar, tasks... etc. etc.  and those changes reflect on the supes computer / outlook.

Sorry for such a dumbed down question...  ha.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

Upgrade to Outlook 2010 and then you can have multiple Exchange Accounts opened within the same Outlook Profile and it will be much less painful to manage than setting up Send As permissions etc.

Only downside is she will need to know the supe's password!

Make sure your email account is highlighted and then click on the “Change” button
 
Then click on the “More Settings” button

Then click on the “Advanced” tab
 
Click the “Add” button
Type in the users name who’s mailbox you have rights to manage and click the “OK” button

Now you will see the users name in the Additional mailbox area.  Click the “OK” button
 
Then click the “Next” button and then click the “Finish” button
Click the “Close” button on the last window
Now at the bottom of your mail list you will see the mailbox for the user.  You can double click on it and open whatever folders and mail you like.
