You can open contacts that other users have shared with you.

To open shared contacts

  1. In the Amazon WorkMail web application, on the shortcut bar, choose the contacts icon.

  2. At the bottom of the navigation pane, choose Open other contacts.

  3. In the Open other folders dialog box, choose Name to open the address book.

  4. Select the owner of contacts to open, and choose OK.

  5. For Folder type, choose Contacts.

  6. To view the subfolders of the shared contacts, choose Show subfolders.

  7. Choose OK.

    The shared contacts are now visible in the folder navigation pane.


    Your opened folders are stored in your Amazon WorkMail web application profile. The next time you log in to the Amazon WorkMail web application, the opened folders are still displayed.

    If you receive a message saying that "You have insufficient privileges to open this folder.", contact the owner of the folder and ask them to grant you access.

    To change folder permissions, in the navigation pane, open the context (right-click) menu for the folder, and choose Properties, Permissions.
