Even if the user has full control over the NTFS share, the user cannot
access the mailbox unless permissions are defined explicitly at Exchange
level. Exchange IS permissions are not the same as NTFS permissions.
Have you verified if the Managers mail box has been delegated to a DL in
which this user is a member ? Open the managers Outlook session, check
under the delegates tab, and also check in the Permissions tab of the
Inbox, Outlook Today and any other folder that is visible to the user to
check if the delegate permission is defined.

Also, check in the Exchange admin window that the manager's mail box
does not have the user listed.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 5.5 mailbox security

I have a user has been able to access the manager's mailbox, but she
doesnt have permissions to access it!! The exchange server is 5.5 and is
a member server, the only security lapse I can think of is that the
everyone group has full control over the ntfs drive.

Any ideas?  How ever small your idea it's bound to help!!! thanks in
