  • Share folders
  • Change and remove sharing rights
  • Display folders people share with you
  • Hide shared folders

NOTE

In Kerio Connect 8.4, you can share any email folder, including the Sent and Trash folders.

  1. Click the plus sign and the down arrow to share with:

  • Editor — Users can add, delete, and edit messages.

  1. Save your settings. By default, you set the access rights for this folder only. To set the same access rights for the subfolders, click the arrow next to Save and select Also for all subfolders.

If someone shares an email, contact, notes or task folder with you, follow these steps to subscribe to the shared folders:

  2. Click a user to see all the folders they share with you.
  3. Select the folders you want to display in your Kerio Connect Client.

Kerio Connect Client displays the folders immediately in the folder tree.

  2. Click the menu icon next to People.
