Sharing an Outlook folder

We are in a hybrid exchange environment with office 356. I am trying to share one of my outlook 2016 folders. I right click on the outlook folder I want to share and go into properties.
I go into "Permissions" and add the users. I select "Full Details" under "Read" and select "Folder Visible" under "Other". I go over to another workstation running Office 2013 and go to "Account Settings/Change/More Settings/Advanced/Add/Select Download shared folders (after adding mailbox)/click OK. I restart outlook and I see the folder but when I try to open it I get an Outlook alert message the says "Cannot expand the folder'

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If this folder is a subfolder, you will need to give permissions from the root folder all the way to the folder you are attempting to share.
For example if you have a folder named "Test" and its a sub folder of the inbox. you will need to give the users at least view permissions to the inbox and then permissions on the subfolder Test. Then they will be able to expand the folder and view its contents, but just remember each sub folder will need view permissions of the parent folder or folders.

OK. I did that. I gave review permissions to the inbox as well as review permissions to the subfolder. I restarted Outlook on both workstations and still the same error. Let me try removing and re-adding the additional mailbox to the outlook profile.

Sorry i should have mentioned read section titled "Partial/selective access without Sharing invitation" because this seems like the method you are taking to share the folder.

Just give view permissions. only give the full permissions to the target folder.

That's all it has on both. People who will be having access to the shared folder only need to view the contents

On all Parent Folders Under permissions make sure Read is None, and Delete is None, and Other is Folder visible, but on the target folder set your permissions you want the user to have.

Also be sure you are doing this on each individual user or that will have these permissions and not on default or anonymous.
