|6. Once the alias is entered, select OK, Next, Finish, then Close. HHSC regional designated Resource Mailbox users will access the region's resource mailbox folder in the Outlook tree.|
Resource Mailbox owners designated by regional management will be able to add, edit or delete Resource Mailbox users by right-clicking on the mailbox folder. Resource Mailbox owners must contact the Consolidated Help Desk (512-438-4720) if assistance is needed to add, edit or delete Resource Mailbox users.
Permission to forward information from the resource mailbox requires configuration of a separate Outlook profile. Resource Mailbox owners should submit a Help Desk ticket to have this completed for the authorized users.
The regional Resource Mailbox folder will have a single password that will be shared by all authorized users in that region. It is important that one person per mailbox be designated to maintain the password. All other authorized users must understand they are not to reset the password.
