At first the temporary administrator only required read-only access to the
mailbox, but now turns out that she requires exclusive access to all items
within the mailbox, i.e. Inbox, Calendar, Sent Items, etc.  My response was
to add the user's NT account requiring access to the absentee's mailbox
within Exchange Administrator rather than individually configuring MAPI
permissions on each individual mailbox item (very painful and

Although I know this solution will work my question is this;

MAPI permissions update pretty much instantaneously I know, however, when
modifying permissions on the account in Exchange it takes a while to update

there a manual process which will force an update?

We are using Exchange 5.5, Outlook 2000 in an NT 4.0 client environment.

Any help would be much appreciated!
