If you need to have another employee check your email (example: while you are out of the office), you can grant them access to view your inbox without sharing your IWU account password. They will then be able to view the email messages in your inbox using Outlook on their own computer but will not be able to access anything else through your account.
To set this up, follow these three steps:
To specify an individual who can access your items:
To set their level of permission (view items, move items, delete items, etc...):
In general, the Reviewer level should provide the minimum required access for someone to monitor your incoming mail.
You'll need to set the same permissions for the "Inbox" folder inside your mailbox in order for the individual to actually see your emails.
With your mailbox and Inbox successfully shared, direct the individual to the following instructions so that they can add your mailbox to their Outlook view:
When you return to work or are finished sharing your inbox, you can remove the permissions so that the individual can no longer access your mail.
These instructions are for employees using Microsoft Outlook 2007 or 2010 with their IWU e-mail account. Note that only the default Inbox folder can be shared. Any subfolders inside of the inbox cannot be seen by another user.
