Good afternoon experts,

I am currently using Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010 for my users. Most of the staff are still going thru terminal services to do their work , including gaining access to Exchange. In years past I was able to simply do the following to give a person access to another email account in addition to their own:

The account is question is called careerextravaganza and the account I want to assign this account to is a fake user I called tgrey. Here are my steps:

Created Active Directory Account Called tgrey


!
Created Exchange account for tgrey


!
Next,

with administrative rights I logged into my domain controller , which has a copy of Outlook installed on it with several different profiles, like so


!

Next,


I chose the CareerExtravaganza profile and it prompted me for the password for the  account so I entered it and was able to access the account


!
Next,


I am in the account

!
Next,

I right click on the careerextravaganza account properties and assign the tgrey account full rights and click ok, like so:


!
Next,

I add tgrey as a delegate of the careerextravaganza account like so:


!


!



!

!

From here I go to the tgrey  account and add the careerextravaganza account to the profile like so:


!

!
!

!

I know , I know, its a lot of steps to do something very simple and still only the inbox shows up. Like so:



!
What I was expecting to see was this:

I know there are a plethora of Exchange and Outlook experts out there, so please push me into the right direction. A step by step would be nice, but a link will suffice. This is kind of a high urgency task, so please respond asap.

you can use exchange management console or shell to give a user full permission to a mailbox instead of delegating like that

Allow Mailbox Access

Run this command in EMS:

Add-MailboxPermission -Identity careerextravaganza -User tgrey -AccessRights 'FullAccess'

Then you can expand his mailbox in Outlook, you'll be able to see everything
