    Allowing others to set out of office assistant (2003)

    The organisation I work for has a somewhat dubious policy, that everyone's password is stored in a (physical) folder for everyone else to access should they need it. Obviously this poses huge security (as well as some privacy) risks, and I'm dead against it. The reasoning behind the policy is the usual - if I'm suddenly off sick or something, they'll need access to my inbox, personal network drives, and to set my out-of-office assistant. Now obviously the first two can be handled easily by setting permissions for the relevant folders, so there's no need for password-sharing there. But does anyone know a way of setting an out-of-office assistant for a different user (on the same network) without knowing their password?

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    If you're on Exchange Server, there is a utility Symprex Out-of-Office Manager. It's not cheap, but you can download a free evaluation version.
