Outlook 2003 - Adding Additional Mailboxes


Many departments have shared mailboxes.  This means that folders such as the Inbox, Calendar, Contacts and Tasks may be accessible to some or all the members of your department.  Once access permissions have been allocated to the mailbox, you are then able to add the mailbox to your own Navigation Pane so that you have quick easy access to it.
