I don't believe it's possible. You either have permission to view the mailbox or not. There's no "mail item-level" permissions to apply.

It allows you to select from your available outlook & google calendars ...

Use this fantastic, free and opensource tool: Go Contact Sync Mod (http://sourceforge.net/projects/googlesyncmod/). I've been using it for over 3 years now and the new version adds Calendar sync, just in time when Google has sunset its own Google Calendar Sync.

I think in this instance, those underlined keys are "shortcuts" only when you have that right click/context menu open. For example, you right click on an emails and see the K in Mark as Read underlined, hit K and that option is highlighted, hitting enter will trigger the action (only required for some commands, see edit). You could speed this up into a ...
