Microsoft Exchange accounts are used by organizations with many users. They make it possible to synchronize e-mail, calendars, and contacts between multiple computers.) and the account owner must grant you permission.

  2. Click Find User Find User button.
  3. Type the name of the person who granted you access, click Find, click the person's name, and then click OK.

If you have multiple Microsoft Exchange accounts, on the Account pop-up menu, click the account that you want to use to open the other user's folder.
