Can multiple Outlook users manage rules for shared mailboxes?

I have a question regarding Microsoft Outlook 2003 mailbox rules. Some mailboxes are accessible to multiple Outlook users. These users need permissions set up and manage the mailbox rules in order to organize shared public folders. The users need to be able to access and edit each other’s Outlook rules. How can this be done? Are Outlook rules specific to mailboxes or to users' profiles? Can changes made to Outlook rules be updated for all the users that have access to these mailboxes?

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

If person A adds person B to their mailbox permissions at the top level (right-click mailbox, person A, go to permissions and add them), then person B can go to thte control panel, open the mail icon, click “show profiles” then choose to be prompted for a profile. They can then open their outlook and when the prompt window opens, click “new” and create a profile for Person A. When the outlook profile of Person A opens, their rules can be edited by Person B. These steps will have to be repeated for each user for which they want to edit the rules.
