From MAPI Connector (Outlook) Profile, AJAX
WEBMAIL and Mobile WEBMAIL Interface.
Users with Personal Organizer and Groupware Access can easily share their folders with other users on domain also having such rights. This sharing can be configured from MAPI Connector (Outlook) profile or also from AJAX WEBMAIL. The explanation below is for accomplishing the task through Outlook Connector (similar steps apply if doing from AJAX WEBMAIL Interface or the Mobile WEBMAIL interface):
To control a folder's sharing permissions, go to the tree folder on the left of your Outlook, right click on the folder you wish to set permissions on, choose Sharing or Properties and in the new window select the Folder Permissions tab. When accessing this tab for a folder a list of the already defined permissions is displayed. If no permission has been previously set the list will be blank. If you already have configured folder sharing earlier fro Connector or AJAX WEBMAIL it will contain the list of users already having sharing rights on the selected folder as is shown in the image alongside
- No access (all permissions are denied)
- Viewer (view and read folder is allowed)
- Contributor (view, read folder and add items is allowed)
- Editor (view, read folder, set/clear flags, add items, mark items as
deleted/not deleted and expunge is allowed)
- Master (all permissions are allowed)
- Custom (each permission is defined individually according to your needs)
Each permission may be allowed explicitly, denied explicitly or not specified.
hierarchically (are inherited on the group hierarchy). Additionally, resource
hierarchies (a folder being parent to another folder) also benefit from the
inheritance algorithm. In the Effective Permissions tab you will be able
to see what permissions are specifically allowed or not.
Process of configuring sharing from AJAX WEBMAIL involves similar steps as noted above for doing through MAPI Connector (Outlook) Profile. This can also be done from the Mobile WEBMAIL interface.
Please note: This cannot be done over a normal IMAP profile from any client.
