How do I share my mailbox folders in Outlook 2010/2013?

Outlook on Windows (2010/2013)

  1. In the navigation pane, select the folder you want to share

  2. In the Folder tab, click Folder Permissions

  3. Click Add…:
  4. Search for the person you want by name. Click the Add -> button, and press OK once you’re done adding users
  5. Customize their permissions for this folder by using the Permission Level drop-down menu and the checkboxes below
  6. Click OK once you’ve finished setting permissions

Note: It is not recommended to share your entire mailbox. If you need to grant this level of access to someone, adding them as a delegate is the best option.
