The usual way to accomplish this with Exchange is to give the secretaries a
"User" role on their managers' mailboxes. Once this is done, the secretary
adds her manager's mailbox to her profile, and adds the "From" field to her
New Message window. At that point, she can read her manager's mail from
her own client, and she can send e-mail as though she were him (by putting
his e-mail name in the "From" box on the message).
There shouldn't be any "mailboxes" created anywhere, unless you are using
PSTs. You can save yourself a lot of grief by just keeping all mail on the
server and forgetting PSTs in this case. Don't try to share PSTs among
users; it won't work. And avoid putting PSTs on remote systems; they are
designed to work best on the local machine.
