I have an Exchange 2010 with a shared mailbox.
From my Outlook I see the shared mailbox with under it all the usual folders: Draft, Deleted items, Inbox, Outbox,....
Is possible to configure the shared mailbox so that from outlook I see only Inbox folder?

    Accepted Solution

    if you have shared the mailbox by giving using exchange admin tools, then the permission is given to the full mailbox rather than sub folders. if you just want to see inbox and nothing else, login to an outlok as the mailbox user and right click inbox, permission and give yourself appropriate permissions. the draw back of this is that it has to be done for each subfolder of inbox that you want to see.

    I think you can log on as the shared user, open outlook, click on the root of the mailbox in folder list view in the left pane. right click, props, and assign everyone the list permission. then go to each sub folder (deleted, drafts etc) and takeaway the list option and read option. on inbox give users list, read, modify etc.
