Access Other's Folders

By s.mozden ·
There are a number of ways to set up access by other users one's standard folders. The question is: Once having granted permission in the Properties of a non-standard folder or subfolder of an Outlook mailbox, how can the user who has been granted permission to access the folder do so? The non-standard, or user created folder is not listed as one of those to which access can be selected.

Access Other's Folders

by spiceman In reply to Access Other's Folders

Assuming you have assigned the user as a delegate user - In outlook choose tools -services
Select the exchange server and click properties - select Advanced tab and click Add. Type the name of the mailbox you have been assigned permissions - click OK, OK and OK. The other mailbox and folders will now appear. click the Folder list toolbar button to display the folder list if it not shown.

Good luck.

With this response I was able to figure out what is needed is two actions: (1) owner must grant permission for whole mailbox in Properties; and, (2) Permissioned user must add in mailbox in Services. Then, owner must limit folder by folder or allowsame access to all in mailbox. Makes one want to use Public Folders.

This only works in Corporate/Workgroup mode with Exchange Server.

From Outlook, select FILE/OPEN/Other User's Folder -> input the user name and the appropriate folder name.

If you have given access to the entire Mailbox, you can open it at startup via configuration of the Microsoft Exchange Service [Tools/Services/Microsoft Exchange Server/Properties/Advanced/Open these additional mailboxes.

The FILE/OPEN/Other User's Folder does not allow for access to non standard folders. If you want to see the Inbox fine, but what about a owner created subfolder.
