If you configure the e-mail account of another user as your
default e-mail account in Outlook 2003, you can access the secure resources,
such as network shares, of the e-mail account of the other user even though
your own e-mail account does not have the required permissions to access this
information. Additionally, you can no longer access the secure resources that
your e-mail account has permissions for if the e-mail account of the other user
does not have permissions for these secure resources.
This problem occurs because the most recent set of user
credentials take precedence over the credentials that were used to log on to
the computer when there are multiple e-mail accounts on the computer.
To work around this problem, you must be made a delegate for
the e-mail account of the other user to have access to this e-mail account.
This gives you access to the e-mail account of the other user without giving
you access to the their secure resources.
