  • Outlook 2003/Exchange 2003 Delegated permissions

    I have just installed Exchange 2003 having previously installed Outlook 2003 on all PCs. All PCs are now added to the Domain.

    I have created Exchange Server accounts on each PC. I find that I can add other users' email accounts to one PC without the User adding me as a delegate on their PC.

    What is wrong? Do I have a permissions issue?

    Thanks.

    If this is a new Exchange installation, have you changed anything in the Exchange setup?
    Added the users to a group they shouldn't be a member of?

    Exchange does NOT allow users access to all mailboxes by anyone - admins or users - by default. Therefore something has been changed.

      The only user group to which all users belong is Domain Users which appears to be aPrimary Group which cannot be deleted.

        The point is - what have you changed? If this is a fresh installation of Exchange then something has been changed from the default. By default users cannot open other's mailboxes.

        Are you sure that the users can open and see content? You cannot stop someone from adding another mailbox to Outlook, but the permissions would stop them from opening it.
