I have an Outlook 2016 client connected to an Exchange 2013 Server. I created a Shared Mailbox Resource called "SHARED" and gave myself PublishingAuthor privileges on the "SHARED:\Contacts" folder. Specifically I did not make myself the owner of the mailbox because I only want to be able to see the contacts, nothing else. Doing this for the one main folder, I have no issue.
Now that I see his contact list in my outlook, I have a bunch of related contacts I want to group together in a sub folder. As a PublishingAuthor, I expect to have inheritable rights to create a subfolder underneath "Contacts", and then be able to open up that folder as an additional Shared Contact Folder. This I cannot do.
If I right click on the shared contact folder, and select new folder, it does not allow me to put it under the existing share. If I log in as the owner of the shared resource, create a subfolder, and grant PublishingAuthor access to myself (same as primary contacts folder), I cannot open up the second shared folder.
Any and all help would be appreciated.
