The email system lets you share access to mail folders with other people.
In addition, we can create specific shared mailboxes which have their own email address, for special purposes such as workshops, conferences, etc. You access the mailbox using your regular physics mail account, rather than having a separate username and password.
You can share your own folders, or change access to other shared mailboxes which you control.
The simplest way to do this at present is to install the Thunderbird Imap-ACL-extension (ACL stands for “Access Control List”).
Open the “plugins” menu in Thunderbird; then searching for “ACL” should find the correct plugin to install.
Once installed (and after restarting thunderbird), right click on a folder and choose “Properties”. There's now a new “Sharing” tab, which lets you change the folder permissions.
Another menu entry, “Edit → Imap-ACL → List of all ACLs”, lets you see (and optionally change) all ACLs defined on your folders.
