Outlook Delegates

Giving Access

If you frequently work with someone else's Outlook folders, you probably will want to add the other person's Outlook mailbox to your Outlook profile. Doing so will automatically open the other person's folders every time you open Outlook. The other mailbox appears in the Folder Pane beneath your Outlook mailbox folders.

1. Open Outlook and select Tools -> Account
