How do I grant access to someone else to send emails on my behalf?

You must be using Microsoft Office Outlook to grant access for a member of staff to send emails on your behalf - Webmail does not have this feature.

  • Start by clicking File, then Account Settings and then Delegate Access
    Delegate Access
  • In the Delegates dialog box, click Add
  • Type the name of the person whom you want to designate as your delegate, then Add and then OK
    Add User
  • In the Delegate Permissions dialog box, delegate the user as an Editor under Inbox
  • Check the tick box Automatically send a message to delegate summarizing these permissions
    Delegate Permissions
  • Click OK on the permissions window and then click OK again on the delegates window
  • The access for the member of staff to send emails on your behalf has now been granted
