Hi,

Is this a folder that has been created manually? Is this your setup?

Mailbox user name
     - Inbox
           - Name of folder trying to give access to?

If this is the case then you need to setup the Outlook permissions at each level for the user who needs access and then add your mailbox to the users outlook profile so they can browse through the folder structure to the folder they require access to. i.e. Right click each folder level in Outlook > select Properties > Permissions

Why don't you use public folder and share between both of you.

That sounds weird.With public folders you don't need to share them.Give access to both of you.Are you guys on the same exchange servers.If not then it might time to replicate the public folders.

1.  Right-click on the Mailbox - Mailbox name item in Outlook, click Properties, go to the Permissions tab and set the permissions for the user.
2.  Then right-click on the Inbox folder (if the folder you want to share is a subfolder of the Inbox) and set the permissions there as well.
3. The right click the folder you want shared and set the permissions there also.

Now add the mailbox which contains the shared folder to the other users outlook profile via Control Panel > Mail > Email accounts > View or Change > Change > More Settings > Advanced > Add > select the mailbox that has the shared folder from the GAL.

When that user opens Outlook, they'll see the top-level Mailbox-[Your User Name] and then below it they will see only that single folder as well as their mailbox.
