Become a delegate or stop being a delegate

Before you can become a delegate, another person must grant you delegate access to a Microsoft Exchange account (Microsoft Exchange account: An account managed by Microsoft Exchange Server. Microsoft Exchange accounts are used by organizations with many users. They make it possible to synchronize e-mail, calendars, and contacts between multiple computers.). You may receive an e-mail notifying you that you have delegate access. Then, to access the items that you are a delegate for, you must add the person who granted you access to your People I am a delegate for list. When you want to stop being a delegate for someone, you need to remove the person from the list.
