Notes on how to act as a delegate in MS-Outlook on Exchange

  1. In Manage another person’s mail and calendar items, you can learn form the source, how to:
    1. Add another person’s mailbox to your profile
    2. Open another person’s folders
    3. Send or respond to meeting requests for another person
    4. Create or reply to an email message on behalf of another person
    5. Save sent items in another person’s Sent Items folder\
  2. Cornell.edu has generally good instructions for their similar Outlook/Exchange environment, so I just quote them :

    Create meeting requests on behalf of your manager: You must be viewing your manager’s calendar in order for the meeting request to appear to come from them rather than you. (How do I view my manager’s calendar?)

    If you have more than one calendar open (many people leave both their own calendar and their manager’s calendar open), click anywhere in your manager’s calendar before creating the meeting request.

    Notice that in the Scheduling Assistant, your name will not appear. Instead, your manager’s name is included. Which is what you want. So that’s good. Respond to meeting requests on behalf of your manager: [with delegate access,] You can respond to these messages in exactly the same way you would respond to an invitation sent to you.
