delagate problems

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hey guys,
Urgent problem here. User1 is enabled and has archived items. User2 has delegation access to the mailbox (aka an admin for an exec). User2 can search and see all the items from IE, so we know the perms are good. The problem comes in when we try to use outlook. We�ve installed the forms locally (just to be sure), as well as installed the msi. The mailbox of user2 is unenabled.
From the unenabled mailbox, we can�t see the msi controls. The delegated user2 can see the shortcuts of user1, can see the icons associated with it, and can open the shortcut�but it can�t open the original window�it just hangs.
So the question is, why can�t we see the controls (and I checked in the add-in mgmr and even tho it�s installed, it�s not listed), and why does outlook hang on the banner click?

Have you enabled scripts for shared mailboxes?

Outlook 2003 includes a new setting -- turned off by default -- to allow forms in shared mailboxes to run script.
You can change the setting by choosing Tools | Options | Other | Advanced Options and checking the box
for Allow script in shared folders. You'll see that there is also an option for Allow script in public folders.
Enable both of these. (The corresponding registry values are in the
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security key -- SharedFolderScript and PublicFolderScript, both DWORD values.)

Note that these settings affect both script in custom forms for items in public folders and script in folder
home pages for such folders.
