delegate or full acces

Good day!
what is the difference between delegating someone for my mailbox and adding this person on the server to the list of people who have full access? Delegating can be done in different levels, I know but if fully granted, what is the difference?

regards,
SVPbv

Full access will allow them just that, they can be you, send as you, open all items etc, delegation can be restrictive and just allow them to read certain folders etc, not reply and so on.

Delegation allows the end user (who may not be Domain Admin and someone who has access to the Exchange server) to manage who has what access to their Outlook resources.

Agreed. So there is no difference between delegating someone completely or adding them on the server?

Our CEO had two secretaries, both delegated and they experience problems with calendar entries missing of not equal on three different computers. Hence the question.

Fundamentally no i dont think there is although we (as an IT Dept) tend to manage mailbox access etc...in Exchange once authorisation has been provided to prevent users granting other users access resources that they shouldnt.

Under Tools\Options\Other\Delegates, select the user and then select Permissions. Check that User A has Editor access to User Bs Calendar and that 'Delegate receives copies of meeting-related messages sent to me' is ticked.

Hope this helps.
