Zimbra Connector for Outlook (ZCO): Using Delegates to Send Emails on Your Behalf

If you want to allow others to send email messages on your behalf then you need to add them to your list of Delegates. Once a user has been added, you can also use the Delegates function to share standard folders in your account, such as Calendar and Tasks, with them. You can enable multiple delegates to send email on your behalf. This does not allow the delegate to access your account unless you have given the
delegate folder permissions.

Below are the steps one would take when setting up a Delegate:

For Outlook 2010 and later users:

Select the Zimbra tab then select Delegates from the ribbon.

 

For Outlook 2007 and earlier users:

Go to Tools>Options.
Click the Delegates tab.

Next, the Delegates dialog will appear. Click Add to select your delegates.

Within the Select Users dialog that appears, select the delegate you wish to designate from the Global Address List (GAL) then Select OK.

 

You will then be prompted to assign permissions. Within the Delegate Permissions: dialog, click the permissions dropdown list to grant permissions to the delegate. Note that by default a new delegate is given Administrator permission for the Calendar and Tasks folders. For our example, we chose to grant Delegate permissions. After making your selections, click OK to preserve your changes.

 

After assigning the permissions, you will be returned to the Delegates dialog and the recently added delegate will now be displayed in the white box. Click OK to close the dialog. 

 

You can enable multiple delegates to send email on your behalf. This does
not allow the delegate to access your account unless you have given the
delegate folder permissions.

After the permissions have been given, the grantee can now send an email on your behalf by selecting From and choosing the address from the list.
