This page contains instructions used to change permissions (access) to the following:

  • Middfiles server folders (including Classes and Orgs)
  • Course Hub
  • Shared e-mail accounts

People who own distribution groups that control access to MiddFiles server folders (including the Classes and Orgs folders) and the Course Hub can modify membership of those groups using the Exchange Admin Center. Membership of shared e-mail accounts may also be changed in this manner.

Use the following instructions to add or remove someone from a distribution group that is visible in the Global Address Book.
