A Project Account is a non-personal Nexus account which is accessible to
more than one Nexus user. For example, there may be several people who need to send
emails from a common email address such as
firstname.lastname@example.org; or you might have a shared calendar for
group events. This section explains how to set up the permissions on such an account
if you are the account owner, and how to access a Project Account.
