Outlook – sharing individual folders between users

Today, a user asked me how they could share a folder between themselves and one or more other users within the same office.

Whilst the solution is “obvious”, right click on the folder in question and choose the Sharing menu option followed by the Pemissions tab, in reality, it’s not quite that easy.

Without going into song and dance about the solution, the key thing to note is that the person sharing the folder must give the recipients access to the entire folder hierarchy. The whole process is described graphically here.
