Create a shared folder
From Kolab Wiki
Concept: Shared folders
The only required information is the name of the folder. This name will however be prepended with the additional prefix "shared." within your mail client. If you create a folder called "general@<domainname>" you should find it as "shared.general" in the folder list of your e-mail program.
For safety reasons it makes sense to provide a quota for shared folders. Folders that are going to be used for sharing of images or larger documents should get a higher quota than folders that will only be used for shared messages.
Finally you can issue different access rights depending on the user ID. There are a few special identifiers and the following table presents the possible options:
|anyone||Any user of the system (including anonymous)|
|email@<domainname>||The user with this e-mail address|
| All members of the corresponding groups |
Note: It should be possible to add Distribution lists as groups. But the corresponding kolab code does not look like it would support this at the moment.
The anonymous user has a special function. If you provide this user - or anyone for that matter since it includes anonymous - with post access rights to a folder (see below) anyone from the outside may send emails directly to this folder by using the special syntax kolab+shared.foldername. As an example you would be able to place messages in the shared folder "general" by addressing your message to "kolab+shared.general@<domainname>".
The access right can be set to the following values:
|none||User has no access rights to the folder|
|post||User may send messages to the folder|
|read||User may read the e-mails present in this folder|
|read/post||User may send messages to the folder and read folder items|
|append||User may place e-mails into the folder|
|write||Users may modify e-mail flags (eg 'read/unread')|
