Outlook 2002 Delegate problem

By john.m1 ·
Hi,
50 user Lan, win2k server, win2k pro, officeXP.

we use delegate rights for access into each others calendar, task list etc.

Now (isn't it always the boss)
my boss cannot set delegate for his new PA,
what happens is, you choose all the levels of access e.g. calendar=reviewer, tasklist=editor, etc then apply / OK.
but if you go straight back into options it has not been set (remembered).
the auto email goes out telling the PA that she has access but the access does not work.

access for the previous delegate (the ex PA) still works !
please help me, my boss is losing faith in me.
thanks JohnM

Don't forget to right click the folder on which you want to have delegated. Go to properties - permissions. Set the permissions here and then your boss will be able to delegate for his new PA.
Good Luck

I am not quite sure how you are going about it but must first of all highlight the item in question i.e. calendar, click on properties, permission tab, click the add button and add your delegate (browse you global address list to choose delegate).

Once done goto the ?permissions pane?, click the arrow done by role and choose desired permission for delegate. Once done click apply and then the ok button.

Once the window is closed delegate should have received a notification of appointment as a delegate. From delegate?s machine you could then goto File, open, other user?s folder and add the name of folder owner and desired item.

If the fails, assign permission via your own Outlook Window,

Click on the Tools menu, choose services, click the services tab, properties button advanced tab, add you manager?s name (mailbox), click apply and ok.

Once the above is done as an administrator open you manager mailbox within your Outlook Window, choose desired item and assign delegates and permissions as desired.

Good luck!
