I'm offen asked to allow user acess to another user's mailbox.
Sometimes I add the user to the ACL list at some other time I add the user in Tools-Preferences-Delegation.
Till now I didn't noticed any difference between the two option.
But I think there must be some otherwise it wouldn't make sense for me two option with the same result ( effect)
What's the difference?

Thanks,

Actually, if you add a user to your delegation profile, Notes will add this user to the ACL of the database and give him/her the rights needed as specified in the options in the delegation profile.
So, basically there's no difference.

Only advantage of using the delegation profile is that you don't have to know what rights to give to a user in the ACL so he/she can do just what he/she needs to in your mail/calendar.

When you give people access to your mail database, they can't read encrypted mail that you receive. Additionally, you can't read encrypted messages they create for you unless your user ID contains the encryption key used to encrypt the messages.

Both are same, except the above.

Though I have been using Lotus Notes for years I never encrypted a single mail nor did the users.

Thank you both.
