Step 2: Authorise mailbox sharing
Click on the+ icon to add the user you want to share folders with. A new interface will then appear.
Step 3: Authorise mailbox sharing
Add the user.
Step 4: Authorise mailbox sharing
You can also customise the level of access for this user by changing the permission options in the Permissions section.
For example you may want the email@example.com user to only have access to the "Drafts" folder in the firstname.lastname@example.org. mailbox.
Click "OK"to confirm your selection.]
Permissions will be granted only for the file in question.
Set up folder sharing permissions
You can now give the second user sharing permissions for a folder, such as the "Drafts" folder.
The process is almost the same as before: right-click on the "Drafts" folder, then
click on "Permissions"
This step can be carried out for any folder.
Carry out the same actions as before by adding a user then giving them the necessary permissions for the folder in question.
You can assign different permissions: Owner, Editer, Author, User...
