I meant to say, may assistant can't see the folders below the inbox from her pc.  On my pc you can see them but not on her pc.

You have to set permissions on each folder that you want your assistant to have access to.  Does she have your mailbox under her profile?  If not, that may be your best bet to make sure she's seeing all of your folders.

My assistant can see my profile and has access to the inbox but see cannot see the folder that I have create below the inbox. in other words on my pc when highlight my  inbox I have plus sign to the left of the inbox icon. if I click that plus sign the folders below the inbox are displayed. My assist also has this plus sign however when she clicks it...it disappears and the folders below are not displayed.

Are you saying that I must goto to each folder and set permissions?

Yes, setting the permissions under Inbox only affects that folder, not the subfolders.  You can get around this by setting the permission at the top level by right clicking Mailbox and click properties.  That should affect the entire profile, not just individual folders.

I my experience I must first set the permission on the profile and then ALSO add each folder I want them to have access to such as CONTACTS or CALENDAR or INBOX and if further subfolder access required then add the properties of those boxes as well.  Alternatively you can add that personal as an owner of their mailbox on the Exchange server and they will inherit permissions to everything.
