Delegate Email Access

Delegate Access is an Outlook feature that enables one person to act on behalf of another Outlook user. The most common scenario in which this feature is used is a manager and his or her assistant. The assistant might be responsible for maintaining the manager's schedule, such as creating and responding to meeting requests. Some assistants might also monitor a manager's Inbox and send email on behalf of the manager.
