Adding Delegates on Outlook 365

This is a step-by-step guide for adding a delegate onto your Outlook 365 email from your desktop. Your delegate can have access to managing your calendar settings and/or emailing on your behalf. 

Once you’ve accessed your Microsoft Outlook email, go to your Outlook Preferences which is located at the top left of your screen. 

Under “Personal Settings” select “Accounts

Your Accounts window will open and display your live accounts. From here you will select the “Advanced” button towards the bottom right of the window.

The “Advanced” window will present you with three tab options towards the top: Server, Delegates, and Security. Select the “Delegates” tab. 

The top half of the window will give you the option to add a Delegate who can act on my behalf. To do so, click on the addition symbol towards the middle left of the window.

You will then be presented with the “Choose a Person” window where you will enter the email address of the individual who you would like to add as a delegate to your email account; select “Add” to be prompted to the delegate settings. 

You will have the ability to customize the “Permissions” for you delegate. Once you’ve customized their settings to best fit your needs, select “OK.” 

From here you will be presented with your Delegates tab from your Account window where you will select “OK” to finalize your changes (all changes will be automatically saved, feel free to close the tabs once you’ve made any changes from here).

To remove a delegate, simply highlight their name from the “Delegates” tab in the “Account” preferences and select the minus symbol located at the middle left of the window.
