    Perhaps a phone call to him so he can supply the password will work? Or is he possibly checking voice mail?

    Oh wait, let me guess, he's out of town and can't be contacted where he's at, right?

    If this truly is the situation, then perhaps better planning in the future will remedy this situation from occuring again?

    What kind of mailserver is it? Exchange, what?

    There are ways but I need more information regarding the operating systems, your rights on those systems and what kind of mail server is being used.

    Ok, so you answered the 'need' part of his question...that sounds legitimate enough.

    I'll go out on a limb here, and based on your query and the info you've asked for/provided, I'll make some assumptions and then give you some advice.

    Assumptiions:
    #1 you are not the enterprise Administrator for Active Directory/NT Domain, Exchange, or Account Management
    #2 you haven't asked for or received official permission or sanction to perform this activity

    Advice:
    #1 present your need to access this email to your manager/supervisor/CEO (as appropriate for the size of your company), and cite your responsibility to handle this situation in the owners absence
    #2 request that the email (exchange, lotus, or whatever) admin assist you, either by granting you access. forwarding the messages to you, etc.
    #3 make sure you have a paper trail of the authorization. nothing like getting nipped for doing something the boss said you could....

    Now you may think I'm full of sh!t, but really, this doesn't really sound like a case where you should *start* ny trying to crack someone's account. I have *NEVER* heard of a situation where an end user has needed to legitimately crack the user account of a co-worker, when it was not a specific part of their job. And in a properly engineered environment, you shouldn't have the need to crack an account...you just request access from the right administrator/support team. As mentioned above, maybe this is a good opportunity to learn and better plan for the next time.

    Now that being said, we don't all work in perfect environments, and we don't all have the resources I've described. I'm just trying to help you get the issue resolved without getting pinched for violation of policy.

    Dougal............

    Don't you read the posts?...........what mail system?............you were asked........you just want his password to NT.............you will not give us enough information to help, because you obviously know jack sh1t about IT, particularly in a corporate environment. Why come to a website like this when you should be going to your IT Systems Administrator?.........Get yourself a life before you get yourself fired and a prison sentence.

    YOU ARE A TROLL

    Again

    Why do you not follow what has been suggested here??

    Do you have "permission" from your Boss, IT dept etc to do this??

    Why do you not ask the system admin...they can get into it...or give you access??

    You havent supplied enough info

    that would be the best thing to do dougal (what morganlefay suggested) ask your boss of you cannot get in touch with the empolyee that you need his password, then if your boss says yes then you cna go to your network admin and whith the proper paperwork get the info you need from the mailserver.
