How to grant Send on Behalf of Permissions (Outlook 2010)

More Information

When sending on behalf of another user, Policy Patrol will add the signature for the user that you are sending on behalf of if you use one of the methods below:

Send on behalf will permit a user to send e-mails as another user, but it will show that it was sent by user A on behalf of user B.

Send as will give a user permission to send mail as another user. So if User A sends as User B, the recipient will only see User B in the From field, with no reference to User A.

There are 3 ways to accomplish this: Outlook Delegates, Exchange Management Shell or Exchange Management Console.

  5. Select if you want to receive a copy of meeting requests and responses. Then click OK.

Option 2. Using Exchange Management Console
