We have SBS 2003.

I would like my assistant to have complete access to my email account on her Outlook and for that to synchronise. Basiaclly both of our Outlook needs to synchronise. At the same time I would like for her to have her own Exchange account. I understand you can only log onto one exchange profile at a time. I want her to be able to send and recieve as me at the same time to be able to send and recieve with her own email address. It would be great if she did not have to log in and out of Outlook to view different profiles or email accounts. We are on the same network or domain.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    All you have to do is give her permission to you Exchange account, and then add your account to hers and she will have both accounts in outlook.

    So, she won't have to close her Outlook and log back in as me? Will she have two folers in Outlook? One for me and for her own email address.

    You can assign each other the appropriate mailbox and send as permissions in Active Directory users and computers AND you can have both mailboxes open at once.

    The above solutions will both work as they were quicker than me.
    Too answer your other question.
    If you do either of the above when she opens outlook she will have her own inbox and all subfolders associated with her account.
    Further down she will also see your inbox and all associated folders with your account.
    Too send as you she needs to use the from field when replying or sending a new email. To get the from option it depends which vers of outlook but normally its under new email Options> show from.
    Then she will have the usual too cc bcc and the from option which will allow her to put your name in the from and it will look to the reciepiant that you have sent the email
