One mailbox for multiple accounts
I’m in the process of migrating our staff from an NT environment using
Exchange 5.5 to a Windows 2003 environment using Exchange 2003.
On the old environment, I had 2 accounts; a non-privileged account and a
privileged account. I configured my mailbox in such a way that both accounts
had the user role. Anyone that shared their mailbox with me (the mailbox)
was accessible when logged in with either account.
Now that I’m on the Windows 2003 environment using Exchange 2003, I’m having
some difficulty configuring the mailbox to work the same way. My
non-privileged account has ...Exchange 2003 Offline Defrag
Wondered if someone could confirm exactly how much space is require on the
hard drive to perform an offline defrag of the private database. I'm told
it's 110% of the combined size of the priv1.edb and priv1.stm files? If
this is the case I'm going to be cutting it pretty fine on our server and
wondered I go ahead and run it will it simply error at the begining that
there's not enough space? I don't want to start it, wait for hours and then
get a message saying failed.....

when a mailbox is newly created in Exchange 2000, the creator of the
mailbox mailbox is automatically made the owner of the respective
mailbox, if he/she is not member of the domain admins group.
Is there any way to define a default owner for mailboxes regardless of
who created the mailboxes?
I would like to prevent those persons from being able to manipulate
the default permissions of mailboxes, what seems to be impossible, as
even an explicit deny does not prevent them from doing so...

The reason I'm trying to do this is because I want to use EXMERGE to extract

permissions related so I went through the process of granting the
Administrator account service access at the organizational level as well as
removing explicit deny to Send As and Receive As to other groups this
account is part of. I've even set explicit permissions on the Mailbox
