Linked Mailboxes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have two forests - our original AD forest (ADForest) running Windows 2008 DC and also an Exchange 2007 forest (ExchangeForest) holding user mailboxes. There are trusts etc set up, but I was wondering how this would all work.

    For instance, I have a manager's mailbox in the Exchange forest. I want to give an Assistant access to that....do I just give access to their ADForest account? Wil this mean that their Outlook can access the Manager's one?

    You environment:

    Exchange forest(ExchangeForest)  holding user mailboxes.

     

    Trust has between created between two foreasts.

     

    You problem:

     

    You have a manager’s mailbox in the Exchange forest.

     

    You want an assistant can access the manager’s mailbox.

     

    If manager’s mailbox is a linked mailbox and assistant account is in the AD forest, please refer to this similar thread:

    If manager’s mailbox is a linked mailbox and assistant account is in the Exchange forest, you can just give mailbox “full access permission” to the assistant account:
