Office 365, Email, Exchange, Delegates

How do I give someone the ability to send messages for me or manage my calendar with Exchange and Outlook?

Similar to having an assistant that helps you manage your incoming paper mail, another person, known as a delegate, can receive and respond to email messages and meeting requests and responses on your behalf. You can also grant the delegate additional permissions to read, create, or change items in your mailbox.

How to add and manage delegates:

Windows: See Microsoft's page.

Mac: See Microsoft's page.

Note: Delegates can only be edited if you are logged into an account as the account itself from Outlook Desktop or in Outlook on the Web. If you are only viewing a shared calendar, you will not be able to manage Delegates. 

Using your delegate permissions:
