Sharing inbox in Outlook with Exchange Server.

I have Exchange Server with Outlook and I have created permissions for user A to view user B's inbox on user A's Outlook, however, how do I share all the sub folders such as sent, deleted, etc...

you can grant user A full mailbox access to user B via AD
This way user A will be able to add user B's mailbox in his/her outlook as an additional mailbox

To add an aditional mailbox:

Click Tools, then Email Accounts... .

Under "Email", select View or change existing email accounts, and click Next.

In the Email Accounts window, select Microsoft Exchange Server, then click Change.

Click More Settings... .

In the Microsoft Exchange Server window that appears, click the Advanced tab.

Under "Mailboxes", click Add... .

In the Add Mailbox window that appears, under "Add Mailbox:", enter the name of the Exchange mailbox (i.e., User B), and click OK.

Click Apply, then OK.

In the Email Accounts window, click Next, and then Finish.

Cheers,

Dave

To see all folders you should follow the directions above.
If you need to share folders other than those available under the delegates option, but less than the full mailbox;

Right click each folder and set the permissions individually.
Right click the top level ("Mailbox - <username>") and set the "Folder visible" permission.
Add the mailbox as an additional mailbox, only folders which you have access to will be visible.

I already know how to share the mailbox....what I don't know how to do is share the folders under the inbox.

if you share the mailbox then by default the folders in it are also shared

You can only open the inbox by using the File | Open other users folder / mailbox.
To see any other folders you need to either created a seperate Outlook profile or add the additional mailbox as described above.

AD Account > Exchange Advanced Tab > Mailbox Rights (I think!  Sorry, not in front of an AD Machine at the moment).

Add the user in there and then follow my steps above!

A solution to the Author Comment dated 08.17.2007 is to make sure the Users have permissions to access the mailbox, via configuring the User's exchange access permissions.  Pull up the user's profile who's email you want to share, I'll use SusieQ, former employee, as an example.  Simply go to the "Exchange Advanced" tab under SusieQ's Properties and select the Mailbox Rights button and add the User(s) or groups that would have access.  Now you will see the folder structure with the other Users credentials.  Hope this helps someone!
