Summary

This article contains information about how to use the Delegate Access feature in Microsoft Office Outlook to delegate a user's mailbox to another user. In Outlook, a user can allow another person, known as a delegate, to receive and respond to meeting requests or responses and to send e-mail messages on the user's behalf.When a delegate has Send on Behalf Of permissions, the delegate can compose an e-mail message and enter the user's name in the From box.
