Email, Exchange, How to grant someone permission to send messages on your behalf

How do I give someone the ability to send messages for me with Exchange and Outlook?

To grant someone permission to send emails on your behalf using Exchange and Outlook, follow these instructions:

Grant delegate access permissions to someone
  1. Open Outlook.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. Click the Delegates tab.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Type the name for your delegate or select it from the Name list.
  6. Under Add Users, click Add, and then click OK.
Share your Exchange mailbox
  1. On the Go menu, click Mail.
  2. Under All Mail Folders, right-click your Exchange mailbox.
  3. Click Sharing.
  4. On the Permissions tab, click Add.
  5. Type the name of your delegate or select it from the Name list. Click Add.
  6. To add the name to your permissions list, click OK.
  7. On the Permissions tab, next to Permission Level, you must select, at minimum, Non-editing Author.
Act as the delegate
  1. On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
  2. Click View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next.
  3. Select your Exchange account, and then click Change.
  4. Click More Settings, and then click the Advanced tab.
  5. Under Mailboxes, click Add, and then type the person's mailbox that you want to add.
  6. Click OK, click Next, and then click Finish.
Send e-mail on behalf of someone else
  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Mail Message.
  2. In the From box, type the name of the person you are sending on behalf of. If you leave the box blank, the message is sent from you.
If you are using OWA, assigning delegate permissions is not a feature in OWA since you can't open shared calendars as you can in Outlook.
