How do I grant my colleague access to my email without sharing my password?

How do you grant email access to another colleague, without sharing your login details (because we don't do that - do we!)

Delegating access is designed to help you have someone else look after or monitor your email temporarily. Here are some common scenarios:

  • You going on leave, and someone else needs to look out for an email
  • You job share with another user
  • Your assistant or PA/EA needs access to help you with your email

This video walks you through how this is done.


Note you can revoke the access you have granted to the other user at any time.
