Permissions versus Delegate Access


Entourage and Outlook have the ability to share folders (Inbox, Calendar, Tasks, Contacts, Notes, and Journal). To share those folders, you assign the appropriate permissions. If you have a need to have someone act on your behalf, then you need to assign delegate access.  Delegate access allows someone, the delegate, access to your folders and also the authority to send messages on your behalf.

For example, if you have given someone permissions to share your Calender, they may be able create meetings on your behalf and make other changes, however you are responsible for accepting and declining your own meeting requests. If you wish to have someone accept or decline the meetings on your behalf, you need to give that person delegate access.
