Delegate Access for Email in Outlook

Delegate Access

We have seen intermittent issues with setting Inbox Delegate Access from the Outlook Application. If you are trying to set Delegate Access for your Inbox and are unable to, please contact the Service Desk to assist in the process. This does not appear to effect the ability to set Delegate Access for Calendar, Tasks, Contacts, and Notes

If you'd like to share out a single folder instead of your entire mailbox, see our article Sharing a Folder in Outlook
