I'm an IT Intern with an accounting firm.

My Boss (The Network Admin) wants me to set Outlook 2002 Permissions
with Group Policies in Active Directory (Windows Server 2003).

For example, we have several different groups in AD. Parters,
Accountants, etc... He wants users in the Partners group to be able
to view each other's e-mail, calendar, etc. but other users not in the
Partners group only to view the Partners Calender. This is just one
example, there are several other permissions to be set very similar to
this.

I have very little experience with AD. From what I can tell, this
isn't a common task.

Is this task doable and if so, where should I start reading?

Thanks,

MM

Yes, you can it is pretty easy. In ADU&C on the user account properties,
Exchange Advanced tab, Mailbox Rights button give the users read rights.
Then if they need 'send as' rights, select the Exchange general tab,
Delivery options button add the shared users to the Send on behalf list.
Then in the Exchange account in Outlook, clcik the More settings button,
then on the Advanced tab, Open these additional mailboxes, Add, then type
the Users name for the mailbox you want to connect to.

But not with Group Policies.

You can't do this with GPOs.
