Hello, I have given delegate access to my mailbox in Outlook 2010.  I have a subfolder of my inbox that I would not like them to see.  How can I make this private?  I have removed them from the permissions tab of the folder I want to make private but they are still able to see it. I think they are getting the permissions from the Inbox folder.  How should I set the permissions.

Thank you

Within your outlook client, right-click on each sub-folder that you want to mark private, select Properties, then the Permissions tab. Remove the user (delegate) and all permissions related to that delegate.

I have done this but they still have access.  Does this work even if they have been granted full mailbox access on the exchange?

Very likely.  Modify delegate permissions from account settings -> Delegate Access so that their default access to your Inbox is None.

You will then modify the folders you want them to see:

1. In the navigation page, navigate to your Mail view. Right-mouse-click on your mailbox name, located at the top of the navigation tree. From the pop up list, choose Folder Permissions. Add the delegate with Publishing Editor rights for full mailbox rights. *Note: You have to perform this on your mailbox first, then we can apply granular permissions on folders.

2. Right-mouse-click on on each folder name you want to grant access. Add the appropriate rights.  Ensure the delegate has None rights on the folder(s) you want to keep private.
