You need to give him or her username and password for that mailbox and also how user can access it. Best to have him or her access using OWA.

Thanks Amit,

So I have a user that doesnt have there emails hosted by us. They would like access to two of our mailboxes hosted by us. Is this possible? Could I not just setup those mailboxes in outlook for them? How would I give them permission?

No permission required or will not work in your case, as they are not in your domain. You better need to give them username and password for those two accounts. So user can access it.
Technical InformationAuthor Commented:
OK so your saying just add these 2 accounts as new accounts in the same Outlook Profile.
AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
OWA will be best here. If your have outlook anywhere or VPN then you configure those account in outlook.
Technical InformationAuthor Commented:
No that wont work for me, I have the user names and passwords for the mailboxes. I will just add them to her profile.

Any reason for closing this question without giving any points. In my first post 40989101 I told you to have username and password. Outlook you won't be able to add, until they are in domain or you have option to connect to domain via outlook anywhere or VPN. That's why I suggested OWA. Which is easy to use.
