Creating Folder Mount Point for Shared Folders

Folder mount points for shared folders can be created on the command line to be accessed in the web interface. Currently, the mount points are not downloaded by the ZCO or iSync connectors and therefore must be designated manually in your 3rd party mail client, i.e., Outlook.

In this example, the administrator wishes to designate a mount point to for the shared marketing calendar located in the account for which she will have read/write permissions.
