How do I provide delegate access to my account in Outlook 2011?

Add and manage your delegates

You can give a delegate access to your Microsoft Exchange calendar, address book, and inbox, and you can set permissions that define the activities that delegates can carry out for you.

Do any of the following:

Add A Delegate

 Important   To use delegation, you and your delegate must both be Connect users.

  1. On the Tools menu, click Accounts.
  2. Click the account that you want to add a delegate to, click Advanced, and then click the Delegates tab.
  3. Under Delegates who can act on my behalf, click Add Add.
  4. Type the name of the person that you want to add as a delegate, and then click Find.
  5. Click the delegate's name, and then click OK.
  6. For each item type, use the pop-up menu to select the permission level that you want to set for the delegate.

For more information about the permission levels for delegates, see About sharing and delegation.

 Note   Before a delegate can access your items, he or she must add you to the People I am a delegate for list in his or her Microsoft Exchange account. For information about how to become a delegate for someone else, see Become a delegate or stop being a delegate.

Manage delegate permissions for multiple item types

  1. On the Tools menu, click Accounts.
  2. Click the account that you want to change permissions for, click Advanced, and then click the Delegates tab.
  3. Under Delegates who can act on my behalf, click the delegate.
  4. Click the Action Action pop-up menu button, click Set Permissions, and then make the changes that you want.

 Note   If you set the permission level to None, the delegate remains on the list, which allows you to quickly reinstate permissions later. For information about the permission levels, see About sharing and delegation.

Manage delegate permissions for a single folder

  1. In the navigation pane, click the folder that you want to change.
