that page is nicely old, it says Evolution 3.6.2. Some things are the
same, some are different these days. With Bjørn's 3.26.5 the "Subscribe
to folder of other user" contains "Include subfolders" checkbox, which
can import whole folder structure. They also mention that only a
limited set of folders can be subscribed to, but it's the opposite,
users can subscribe to literally any folder, they only need to know its
ID, which can be seen in folder's Permissions dialog. The evolution-ews 
doesn't support parsing and general work with "User shares a folder
with you" emails [1]. They also mention the Permissions dialog cannot
add new users, which had been fixed meanwhile.

It's also possible to impersonate the account, like to create an
account which opens mailbox of another user. There are some settings on
the server to allow such access to some users.

The only thing is that the option to "Subscribe to folder of other
user" is too hidden. It used to be in File menu, but since users can
configure multiple EWS accounts it would be misleading. I've got an
idea to extend the dialog with a combo to pick which account should be
used (which will be shown only when needed). I thought there had been a
bug for it, but I cannot find it now.

        Hope it helps,
