Giving another user access to the Sent items folder only in Outlook 2003 and 2007

Is there anyway to give other users access to a sent items folder on a users account so they can add it to the normal folder list (i.e with Inbox, etc) but only access to the sent items folder ?
If so how do i do this.

Thanks

Thanks but i was looking to be able to have a seperate sent items folder and not have them merged into the current one which this looks like it does ?

The manager's Sent Items folder appears in the Navigation Pane under Mailbox - manager.

It's separate folder, as you can see

Hi Netexperts,

In Outlook ensure you are in folder view (CTRL + 6). On the recipient(s) mailbox, change the permissions of all top level folders; ensure except Inbox and Sent Items, Default permissions are set to none. Add the users / group you want to have access to Sent Items as well as to the mailbox name.

For example:

Joe Bloggs (Default: none, Anonymous: none, User1: Custom [Folder Visible]
|
|
--Inbox (Default: none, Anonymous: none, User1: As previously configured
|
|
--Sent Items (Default: none, Anonymous: none, User1: Reviewer

This will provide the minimum level of access to view items in the Send Items.

Please note that you may need to wait for Exchange to refresh permissions which can take approx 2 hours or you can restart the MS Information Store. If Outlook is configured in Cached Mode, you may need to wait some time till permissions go live. Alternatively change Outlook to Online Mode.

Hope this helps.

if you have exchange you can just right clicl on the folder you want and go to properties and setup permissions etc from there.

That's fine but if i go to the users Outlook that needs the Sent items folder and go to open another users folder it gives me the options of Inbox, Calendar, Tasks etc but no Sent Items (unless i'm going about this the wrong way)

Hi

Try the below steps which may help you

1. Right click on the Sent Items --> Properties --> Permissions --> Add (Add the user name whom you want to give the access) -- Permissions --> Then select which the Permission you require to assign to user --> Ok.

2. Then on the other user mailbox properties add the shared user mailbox, then you can only see the sent items not any other folders.

Thanks

Thanks,

I've managed to grant reviewer status on the main mailbox and give permission on the sent items but then when i add the other users folder i get the Sent items AND the inbox.....any ideas how to get rid of the Inbox folder as it seems we're nearly there.

Remove the permissions under Inbox, so that Default and Anonymous are set to NONE.
