You can choose to grant individuals access to specific mailbox items.

In the navigation pane, select the folder you want to share:
In the Folder tab, click Folder Permissions:
- Click Add…:
- Search for the person you want by name. Click the Add -> button, and press OK once you’re done adding users:
- Customize their permissions for this folder by using the Permission Level drop-down menu and the checkboxes below:
