Access Exchange emails of another user

Hi I'm currently being assigned Admin rights for a small company. My senior asked me if there was a way for the two of us to access each others email if one of us was to be sick or something. This will be handy when the one present requires info that was sent to the other. It's all sweet as I can imagine we will need to exchange passwords from time to time to gain that access. I was thinking of using OWA. But we need to do that from inside the network. I'm no exchange guru, but as far as I've heard, we can't access OWA from inside?! What other possibilities can we look at? I've got a Windows 2003 Server with Exchange 2003. workstations are XP. Thanx for your time and help in advance. W

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No need to exchange passwords. Just open outlook and navigate to Tools->Options->Delegates and add your ‘Senior’ as a delagate. You can then adjust what he can see and do in your account. he should do the same under his account. That is the first half of the story. Next you have to open the other persons folder. This is accomplished by navigating to File->Open->Other Users Folder… and select the users folder you would like to view. If you have permissions, you will be able to open those folders. As far as OWA, I am not an expert, but we are able to use OWA inside our network without any problem.

Good Luck
Cheers
Eric

    For OWA to work on the inside be sure to use the Internal Address for the exchange server. The outside address will be first routed outside and your router will not be able to properly translate it. To make the outside address work you could also add an entry into your internal DNS-server if present or add it to the hostfile if dns is not available. Example would be webmail.yourdomain.com points to 192.168.0.10(internal address for your exchange server). If it fails there are probably IP-restrictions on the IIS web site hosting your OWA.

    Or the other thing that you could do as you are useing exchange 2003 is add your name to the permissions of the users mail box and then under the services tab of you local mail client add the user mail box to your local client and this will then open up as a set of folders under your main e-mail account.
