Outlook Overview


Sharing and Delegates

Calendar Sharing
Calendar sharing lets you to view the calendars of others and give others permission to see your calendar. You can still mark appointments and events as private to prevent others from seeing details of your personal or sensitive entries.

Delegate Access
Delegate access allows others to work with items in your account. In calendaring it allows the delegate to create/manage calendar entries, and send/respond to invitations on your behalf. In email it allows the delegate to read your email messages, to manage your folders, and to send and respond to email on behalf of you.

Note: You and your delegate must use the same version of Outlook.
