Set up delegate access to the inbox, then rick click on sent items, select "change sharing permissions" and make sure the permissions are set correctly.
I think you might need to do this in Outlook (at least that is much easier)

Right click on Inbox and select Change Sharing Permission, add the secretary and grant the necessary permission. After a while the secretary should be able to open the user Inbox.
What version of Outlook?  If all are 2007 and newer then you can sign onto the mailbox to share and share the Inbox only.  An invitation will be sent to the user being shared to.  If older (2003 for example) then you need to share at the top level - read only and then add full access at the desired level verifying other folders have no access listed.  On 2003 or older you will need to go the the accounts - advanced and add it as a mailbox.
