Overview of Email Folder Sharing

LuxSci's WebMail suite allows you to share selected email folders with other users so that they can have read-only or read-write access to the messages therein. Combined with mail tagging and email notes, folder sharing facilitates easy and powerful email collaboration.

Email folder sharing in WebMail is a standard feature available to all LuxSci email users.

What can you do with Email Folder Sharing?

Users can:

  • Share any number of their folders with other users in their accounts.
  • Choose if folders shared with them will be visible in WebMail or not by "subscribing" to only the folders they want.
  • Share folders as read-only or read-write depending on with whom they are shared.
  • Copy and move messages between shared folders by simply dragging and dropping.
  • Share with arbitrary combinations of individual users, everyone in their accounts, and everyone in their domains.
  • Make arbitrary groups of users that can be centrally managed to easily add and remove any user's folder entitlements. This feature requires a Premium WebAides license.

Administrators can:

  • Automatically subscribe users to shared folders.

Any limitations?

  • While shared folders are compatible with all WebMail features, they are only visible to the sharees in WebMail. They are not visible in IMAP.
