Hi I'm trying to share an inbox here at work with 30+ sub folders. I've managed to get the Mailbox & Inbox shared, but then realised to share each folder I have to go in one by one and add the user to share that individual folder, then the next and so on. You cannot select all and apply at once AFAIK??

any hints?

You can do this on the Exchange server by granting access to the mailbox you want to share.

If you are using Exch 2003. On the server open Active Directory Users and Computers, find the user whos mailbox you want to share. Double click the user to open properties and select the Exchange Advanced tab. Click Mailbox Rights, add the users or group that you want to have access to the mailbox and grant them Full mailbox access rights.

For Exch 2007/2010, go to the server and open the Exchange Management Console. Under Recipient Configuration select Mailbox, then select the user whos mailbox you want to share. Right click on the user and choose Manage Full Access Permission. Now add the users or group that you want to have access to the mailbox.

Now in Outlook, on each of the users machines, go to account settings and select the users exchange account. Choose More Setting (bottom right), then the Advanced tab. Here you can add the additional mailbox that you are sharing.

With Outlook 2010 Microsoft are making this a bit easier by allowing multiple exchange account to be used at the same time.

Hope that helps.
