Office 365 - OWA - Adding a shared mailbox

After you complete this procedure, the mailbox you have been given access to will display in your Outlook Web App (OWA) folder list every time you open OWA.

1.    Log in to your mailbox using OWA.
2.    Right-click your name in the folder list, and click Add shared folder.
3.    In the Add shared folder dialog box, type the name of the mailbox that you have been given access to, and then click Add.
4.    The mailbox will appear in your OWA folder list.
NOTE    If you have only been provided access to specific folders in the shared mailbox, you will only be able to see the folders you have been granted access to.

If you decide that you no longer want to see the shared mailbox every time you open OWA, right-click the shared folder, and click Remove shared folder.
