I  am able to open shared mailboxes, but are not able to see it on the folder list or the side bar. I can only see it if I go to file---openand then enter the user name . The mailbox would then appear in the middle of outlook 2007. I used to be able to see the shared mailboxes on the folder-list view on the left side, but I no longer can. I think someone deleted it. Thank you, Hamed

I should have alos said that  instead of sharing , we often use the Delegate option to give others help with the email of the managers.
Would the above instruction by you ( ach Patil) work still and would the helper be able to respond and create Clendar events on be half of the person that is sharing or delegating?

Thank you,
