Nexus allows users to delegate management of their calendar, inbox, tasks etc. to other Nexus users. For example, you may want to allow your assistant to schedule your meetings or a colleague to send emails from an account you normally maintain (usually a non-personal email account, such as 'webmaster@unit.ox.ac.uk'). This is achieved by using Delegation.

Please note, delegation is different from Sharing, which allows others to access a particular folder or feature, but does not allow them to act on your behalf. Instructions for sharing calendars and contacts are to be found within the calendars and contacts help pages (other folders including the Inbox can be shared in a similar way).

A separate page describes how to set up permissions and access Project Accounts - non-personal accounts used by a group of people to, for example, send messages from a generic address or maintain a shared events calendar.

To add a delegate in Outlook 2003, or to act as a delegate for someone else, you will need to have Outlook set up to connect to your Nexus account. If you have not already done so, please follow the Outlook 2003 Configuration instructions.
