How to share outlook 2007 inbox including subfolders

You may try to look for Outlook delegation option? if this option is not available for the user to view his manager subfolders, then you can:

1. Give the Full Access right on manager's mailbox to user want to access it.
2. Open manager's mailbox as addtional mailbox on user's Outlook

We tried this but it only seemed to give access to the inbox; the subfolders were not displayed unless I was doing something wrong!

Try this from Outlook on the person sharing:

1. Go into properties on the top tree level (where it says "Mailbox - name of user")
2. Go to security tab
3. Just add the name of the manager without any rights (this allows listing of the folders that have rights set)
4. Do the same with each sub-folder you wish to have visible to the manager, but this time you add the rights you wish the manager to have.
Only the folders that have rights for the manager to read/write will be visible when the manager adds the users mailbox to his Outlook.

The manager can user File > Open > Other user's mailbox or permanently map it through Tools > Account settings > Change > More settings > Advanced tab > Add

The permissions do not propagate down.
Do you have access to the Exchange server? If so, which version? There are way of doing it at the server level, but it depends on the version.

I am terribly sorry for not following up on this.

No, I do not have access to the Exchange server but can request it.  Is this the most appropriate way forward?
