  1. Log in to your mailbox using Outlook Web App.

  2. Right-click your name in the folder list, and click Add shared folder.

    Outlook Web App Add shared folder right-click menu option

  3. In the Add shared folder dialog box, type the name of the mailbox that you have been provided access, and click Add.

    If you have only been provided access to specific folders in the other user’s mailbox, you will only see the folders for which you have been granted access.

If you decide that you no longer want to see the other person’s mailbox every time you open Outlook Web App, right-click the folder, and click Remove shared folder.
