Someone is out of the office for a couple weeks and is out of contact. Another employee is filling in for them using their own domain account and mailbox. What options do I have for forwarding copies of incoming email from the guy who's out to the guy filling in for him? I don't want to reset the password for the guy who's out and share it with anyone. I also don't want to redirect the email, meaning it won't be there for him when he comes back. We're using Exchange 2013.

Yeah, that sounds like it should work. I typically poke around the EAC and forget the command lines in EMS. That will keep a copy of all emails in the original mailbox, correct? Just need to make sure the manager is happy with the legal/ethical portion of this, which legally I think is okay since it is a company mailbox.
