Exchange 2016 and Inbox sharing of subfolders

Exchange 2016 on premise server. Is it possible to share a user's mailbox, specifically the Inbox and all its subfolders without having to specifically go into each subfolder and grant permissions?

Yes full access will do that but I am trying to have access to ONLY the inbox and its subfolders. Full access show ALL of the Outlook default folders. Plus in the other tabs for Calendar, Contacts, To Do Lists it displays the user's info and this is not a desired result. Reason being is they have MULTIPLE calendars, to do lists, etc and having those appear without a need for them clutters the view.

There a many subfolders and it would be tedious to have to go into each one and provide permissions individually.

I thought that I would be able to provide access by using the ADD-MAILBOXFOLDERPERMISSION but this only provides access to the folder specified and not the subfolders.

In that case you will have to grant each folder delegate access and walk through the folders

You can look at samples on how to do that:

@BenLan-7531

There are two ways to access the folders of their mailbox, each of which has advantages and disadvantages:
1. Mailbox full access permission: user could access all folders in another mailbox.
2. Mailbox folder permission: Based on folder which need to add permission for all subfolders.

So, you need to add them one by one or find a script as provided by AndyDavid to help you do it in batch.
