Grant Sharing Permissions for a Shared Mailbox using Entourage 2008

Note: You must be an owner of the folders you wish to share before you can grant access to others. This includes the top level of the account. As an owner of a folder, you can grant a person read and write permissions (e.g. the user can open an item, read it and then move it to another folder or delete it). However if you need to grant permissions to send mail from the shared mailbox, the owner will have to give the person full permissions to the mailbox.

1. Open Entourage 2008. If necessary, log into your Exchange account with your Username and Password.

2. In the folder list, click the top level of the shared mailbox (where the account name appears).

3. On the Edit menu, click Folder Properties.

4. Click the Permissions tab. Click Add User.

5. Enter the Full Name of the user you want to give permissions to in the text box, and then click Find. In the search results, click the user's name, and then click OK.

6. In the Permissions list, click the user's name, and then click on the Permission Level drop-down menu. Click the access level that you want to grant this person. (Note: User must be given Owner permissions to set permissions for others.) You can customize the permissions by selecting or de-selecting the options below. Press OK.

7. Click the folder that you want to share.

8. On the Edit menu, click Folder Properties.

9. Click the Permissions tab. Click Add User.

10. Type the Full Name of the user you want to give permissions to in the text box, and then click Find. In the search results, click the user's name, and then click OK.

11. In the Permissions list, click the user's name, and then click on the Permission Level drop-down menu. Click the access level that you want to grant this person. (Note: User must be given Owner permissions to set permissions for others.) You can customize the permissions by selecting or de-selecting the options below. Press OK.

12. Repeat steps 7 through 11 for any additional folders you want to share.
