There´s no other way to stop it Ashu. The Administrator is the most powerful 
and dangerous account on the network. The people who have its password have no 
idea what can be damaged with it.

If others need to change permissions on other´s people files and folders (for 
an example), create a user specifically for that use, but please change its 
password. You can´t remove powers from a account that is intended to solve 
permission issues.

Assunto: [exchangelist] Stop Administrator to access others mail box

I have been trying to see if its possible to remove the administrator from
logging into Outlook web access, I am using Ms Exchange 5.5 SP4 running on a
Windows NT4.0 server SP6a.

The problem is, some people have access to the administrators password, now
that Outlook web access is available, it creates a security hole for those
people to gain access to other peoples mailboxes.

Is there anything else I can do to stop the administrator from accessing
this other than changing the administrators password and keeping it more
