A shared folder is a folder on the host computer — or on a network drive accessible from the host computer — that can be used by both the host computer and one or more virtual machines. It provides a simple way of sharing files between host and guest or among virtual machines. In a Windows virtual machine, shared folders appear as folders on a designated drive letter. In a Linux virtual machine, shared folders appear under a specified mount point.
This is a folder that allows multiple users to receive mail in the same directory. Because all members of a shared folder can access messages in the shared folder, it is not necessary to duplicate the same message for multiple users. Only IMAP clients such as Eudora can access shared folders.
A folder on another computer that has been made available for other people to use on the network.
