I have set this before in 2003 but cant seem to find how I did it. I would like a user at his work station be able to add another users email account to his Outlook, when I try it now a popup comes up that says access denied. I vaguely recall that there is a permission that has to be added somewhere in the server.
Thanks for the help.

In Exchange 2007 (SBS2008) you can add this permission from the Exchange Management Console.

Go to Recipient Configuration -> Mailbox, Right click on the user whose mailbox must be opened, Select 'Manage Full Access Permission'. Follow the steps to add the user who must be able to open this mailbox.

And if you add another smtp email address to this user?

One user can have multiple email address!!

Are you looking for one User to be able to access all mailboxes? If so have a look here:

This needs to be run on each mailbox database, and it will apply to all mailboxes created in the future.
Just make sure that your users are aware of the fact that they are being monitored, otherwise you'd be treading on very thin moral ice...
