Our client has project managers (PM) with sub-workers (SW). Some PMs need to see emails sent by or received to SWs.

Can the subject services be configured to do that?

If not, is there another cloud type email service that can?

Office 365 can allow PM's to see SW's mailboxes, or it can be configured to bcc the PM on inbound / outbound emails so that anything send or received doesn't have a chance to get deleted before it is seen.

You would setup the latter using Transport Rules.

Don't know about Google Mail as I've never used it.

Alan,

Would you have specifics on how to do that, e.g. links to user manuals?

The reason is our deciding factor hinges on this option. Maybe I could do a pilot subscription of several users to test this feature?

Does it work for certain versions only, e.g. Office 365 Business Essentials, Office 365 Business, and or Office 365 Business Premium?

Here is a link to the options available in the Transport Rules:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-GB/library/jj920117(v=exchg.150).aspx

The basic account will allow you to create Transport Rules (I just tested this) and therefore - all plans work happily.

Is that helpful?

Can probably find some more how-to links if you need them, but the Transport Rules are relatively simple - it's just a case of pick the options and fill in the specifics e.g., sender / recipients etc.
