Temp forwarding email from one user to another?

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.

I like to use the Admin center, just if your curious. You can also manage the mailbox by rules if you only want specific messages forwarded.

Just go to the account properties in Exchange, go to the Mail Flow properties tab, and turn on forwarding but also leave the box checked for "deliver message to both..." - This way the original recipient will have all their email and the person covering for them will get a copy. When the original person gets back, just turn off the forwarding.
