      You'd need to coordinate your configurations. You say that you're
      using "marks", which I presume means you're using fold markers
      (":set foldmethod=marker", note that you might have to also change
      'commentstring' to something appropriate for the language you're
      using) rather than "set foldmethod=manual".

      According to

      :help fold-marker

      you can manually specify the fold-level after the markers. You can
      then have the other person set the fold-method to "marker" and then
      use "zM" to close all the folds you want closed. This gets pretty
      close to what you want, though it breaks down if you want to send
      folds that don't get closed.
