How to Quickly Share a folder using Outlook Web app in Exchange 2013

Here is the situation

Mailbox A – Want to Share a folder called “MySharedFolder”


Mailbox B

We will see how to share and how to access it on the other end.

In my case

Mailbox A – Administrator

Mailbox B – Sathesh

Login using Outlook Webapp on Mailbox A (The person is trying to share a folder)

Right Click on the account name , Click on Permissions


Note —

You will be giving permission on both places –

One on the mailbox Level

Second on the Folder Level



Add the Person you want to share .

Give “Reviewer” or any permission level you want to.


Now Create the Folder you want to share or use a existing one.

Right Click on the folder – Permissions


Choose “+”  –

Add the Person you want to share .

Give “Reviewer” or any permission level you want to.




Now Lets see how mailbox B (Sathesh) can access it.

Note : If its cloud based account give some time after you give the permissions . Cause its going to replicate it in the backend.


Right Click on the mailbox , Add Shared folder



Type the Mailbox which is trying to share the folder with you.





Happy Sharing Folders Smile
