I have a need to share a specific mailbox content with my lawyer.  is there an easy way to do this?  They will need to be able to have search capability and maintain the integrity of the threads rather than just a text file.

mail, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    You'll have to open another iCloud account - you can't share access to just part of the email account.


    Go to and create a new ID - you will need a different non-Apple email address to do this.


    Sign in with it in System Preferences>Mail, Contacts and Calendars and enable 'Mail' in the checklist there. You should be asked to create a new address.


    This account will then appear alongside your present one in Mail. Your lawyer can access it in the usual way - if he doesn't have a Mac he can set the account up manually using the server settings here:
