Shared Mailboxes issue

I am trying to figure out couple of things.
I have Exchange 2003 SP1 with Outlook 2003 on client side. We have many 
shared mailboxes thats in use by multiple users. Currently I walk to each 
users desk and give them access to the mailbox either by adding a mailbox in 
their Outlook profile or by creating a seperate profile as needed basis. 
It's getting out of control and I have to attend lots of calls just for 
adding mailboxes. Is there a way that I can do this task without walking to 
each users deak? We have Windows 2000 on clients machines so Remote Desktop 
or Remote Control is not an option for me.

Nothing is built into Outlook to add a secondary mailbox to an existing =
profile. It can, however, be scripted with the ProfMan library from =
Redemption (http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/) or managed with various =
mail profile tools -- see http://www.slipstick.com/exs/olroam.htm

Sharing a workbook
One of our departments is sharing a workbook on a network drive. One of them called me this morning and said he wasn't seeing all of the changes he made yesterday.

Exch2007: Server-side mailbox rules still run with account disabled
Hi, It looks like this may be alarming be an alarming flaw in Exchange security at least for my company's processes in regards to term'ed employee mailboxes.

Issues with demoting exchange server? #2
Hi, It seems that the previous administrator was not succesful in fully promoting a sever to a DC. We are supposed to have two DCs (CC7=First DC, CC5=DC with Exchange server). There have been continuous replication problems from cc5 to cc7. AD doesnt consider cc5 as a DC and cc7 is the only DC in Domain Controllers group of AD. Manual replication between two DCs results in 'no endpoints' error. AD is unavailable several times on both DCs. Object created on a DC is not replicated within two (!) days on second DC. Clearely cc5 can not communicate with cc7 the way it is supposed to. T...

Creating Exch2000 mailbox via a 2003 server
Silly question, perhaps... If a new user is created on a 2003 Server console, Exchange 2000 never makes a mailbox for them, even though it's said to have. Being tasked with upgrading all servers to 2003 with the final step being an upgrade to Exchange 2003, this will be a problem if there isn't a known fix, of course!
