I don't know if this is an exchange 2003 permission issue or Outlook 2003 issue.

What does happen is a user is able to open anyone's folder by using the open other's users folder in Outlook including our CEO's. NOT GOOD. I have just started there and this was brought to my attention. I have looked at the mailbox folder permissons and the inbox permissions and they are the same as Default user is set to none. and Anyomous is also set to none. So there are no rights given to any other user to access there folder, but yet they can. I am perplexed about this issue and have not been able to find any way to correct it. Which leads me back to the old administrator that maybe he set some permissions wrong on the exchange side which allows everyone to do that. If there is a registry key that I can implement or a group policy setting, I'll try it. Thanks for your help.

Look in Exchange System Manager to see who is set up as an <a href=”http://support.microsoft.com/kb/823018″>Exchange Full Administrator.</a>
