Share folders
1.Right click on the folder you wish to share.
2.Choose Properties, select the Permissions tab.
3.If Default has Reviewer permission you won’t need to add individual names to the list unless they need more permissions than the Default account has.
4.Click Add and select the names you want to share with from the Global Address List.
5.Give them at least Reviewer permission so they have Folder visible permission.
6.Click OK to close the dialog.

Repeat for each folder you wish to share.

If the person already has delegate access you won’t need to do anything more. If they do not have any access to your mailbox, you need to give them Folder visible permission to the mailbox.
1.Right click on the mailbox root. This is the folder you click on to display Outlook Today.
2.The Default account typically has no permission to the entire mailbox. You can either give the Default account Folder visible permission or click Add and select your co-worker’s name from the GAL.
3.Check the Folder visible box only. The permission level remains set to None.
4.Click Ok to exit the dialog.
