E-mail messages that you mark with a sensitivity of Private are not visible in the Inbox of a secondary mailbox, although the unread message counter for the Inbox indicates that you have new, unread mail.


This behavior is by design.


To add a secondary mailbox to your current profile:

  1. Start Outlook using a profile containing the Microsoft Exchange Server service.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Services.
  3. Select Microsoft Exchange Server, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Add.
  5. Type the mailbox name in the Add mailbox box, and then click OK. Repeat this step for each additional mailbox you want to add.
  6. Click OK twice to close the dialog boxes.


Choose one of the following methods.

Method 1

Do not mark any messages that you need to send to a shared mailbox with the Private sensitivity.

Method 2

Create a separate profile that uses only the second mailbox.
