    Hello all,

    I would like to know if it is possible to easily share mailboxes between users.
    We are running cPanel v70.0.51 but I couldn't find such a feature.

    Recently I have found the following information:
    SharedMailboxes/Shared - Dovecot Wiki

    ...and it would be absolutely cool to be able to offer this feature.

    WebDav works fine, so I am able to offer syncing calendars and contacts.
    A combination with shared mailboxes and/or mail folders would be great.

    Hi @Bouke

    cPanel does not natively support this configuration at this time. I do see that there is currently an open feature request for the same though and I would strongly encourage you to log in and vote for the feature request here: dovecot shared folder/mailboxes

    Thanks!

    Shared mailboxes allow mail delegation without having to have a separate mail account or allow access directly to your account. Very similar to a shared calendar.
