Exchange 2010 Archive Mailbox Read Permissions

I want to give another user read access to my archive mailbox in Exchange 2010.
Client is Outlook 2010.

The only way I have found to apply settings to the archive mailbox is to give full permissions or send as permissions when I right click the mailbox in Exchange Management console and select either of the Manage options.

There doesn't appear t be granular control of the mail archive.

Any ideas?

A good article but not what I am looking for.
I tried the MAPI config but that doesn't work with Exchange 2010. The Archive Mailbox does nto have a general permissions option. It only has Data File permissions and no Folder Permissions as it doesn't cache a local copy.

Any other ideas?
To the best of my knowledge there is no way to do it from exchange
We can use Outlook to configure it:

1, Right click a folder in archive mailbox and choose permission.

2, In permission tab, then change the permission level.

Which permission though? You only have Data File Properties and this doesn't let me assign access to the Archive?

right click on the inbox for example (or whatever folder you have)

I have created a folder and given reader permissions. Not appearing in the other users Outlook? Are you guessing this should work or do you know this works?

Thanks for your help.
I never said it will appear in the outlook of the other person, it won't. but you just gave permission to the other guy to read this folder
