I have a client who we just switched over to Hosted Office 365 who asked for a feature but I am not sure exactly how I would go about setting it up.   The owner would like to be able to view all user inboxes from his Outlook client on his workstation but am not sure if that is possible with hosted Office 365.  I talked to Microsoft and looked around and it appears shared mailboxes would be a possible solution.  Question is would shared mailboxes be the correct solution and if so how would one go about setting this up on hosted Office 365.  Any help would be appreciated thanks.

Fire up the Microsoft Online Services Module for Windows Powershell and run the following commands:

Set-ExecutionPolicy unrestricted

$Cred = Get-Credential
(then enter the admin credentials for the relevant domain e.g., ee.com)

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $Cred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $Session

Add Shared Mailbox:
New-Mailbox -Name SharedMailboxName -Alias AliasName -Shared
Set-Mailbox AliasName -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota 5GB -ProhibitSendQuota 4.75GB -IssueWarningQuota 4.5GB

Add Full Access To Mailbox:
Add-MailboxPermission AliasName@ee.com -User otheruser@ee.com -AccessRights FullAccess -AutoMapping:$True

Add Send As To Mailbox:
Add-RecipientPermission AliasName@ee.com -AccessRights SendAs -Trustee otheruser@ee.com –confirm:$false

You can setup as many Shared Mailboxes as you like - they are totally free!

Say the current user already has a mailbox and that is the mailbox he would like to view would that be a different command.

Not sure I follow.  If the user already has a mailbox, then they will be using that mailbox and won't need to view it because they will be viewing it already.

I'm sure i am missing something, but not sure what you are wanting to do.
