Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

After creating a sharing policy, you must apply the sharing policy to mailboxes so users can create sharing relationships with users in external Exchange organizations.

A sharing policy exists. For details, see Create a Sharing Policy.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Applying sharing policies" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  2. In the result pane, select the recipient that you want.
  3. In the action pane, click Properties.
  4. On the Mailbox Settings tab, select Federated Sharing, and then click Properties.
  5. In Federated Sharing, click Browse.
  6. In Select Sharing Policy, select the sharing policy you want to use, and then click OK.
  7. In Federated Sharing, click OK.
