 +===== Set up deputy in Outlook =====
 +For a longer absence or vacation it can be desirable to appoint a deputy. Outlook offers the possibility to assign a deputy to the mailbox. Such a deputy can be helpful for function accounts, which should be edited by several persons. 
 +Basically, with a deputy you allow another person to edit contacts, meeting requests, etc. on your behalf and to reply to e-mails as a deputy. To do this, you can define in Outlook the exact access rights for each selected person.\\
 +====Add user as deputy====
 +In Outlook select the menu item **File** (top left) -> **Information** and click on the button **Account settings** -> **Access rights for deputies**.
 +{{ :de:services:email_collaboration:email_service:1windows:outlook_config:outlook2013_stellvertretung.png?400 |}}
 +In the following window you can enter one or more names to select the person(s) from the** Global Address Book**. Double click on the names of the selected person to add them as a proxy and then click **OK**.
 +{{ :de:services:email_collaboration:email_service:1windows:outlook_config:outlook2013_stellvertretung_adressbuch.png?400 |}}
 +In another window you then have the possibility to assign the substitution rights for the selected persons. You can assign and adjust the authorization for the shown elements. Normally it is sufficient to allow **edit** or **read** for the calendar and inbox.
 +{{ :de:services:email_collaboration:email_service:1windows:outlook_config:outlook2013_berechtigungen.jpg?300 |}}
 +For each of the Outlook modules (Calendar, Tasks, Inbox, Contacts and Notes) you can create your own permissions combination of //Create, Read, Write (Modify)//. To do this, select predefined rights from the corresponding drop-down list and complete the process with **OK**. 
 +In the **Permissions of deputy** window, additional, following settings are possible:
 +<WRAP center 80%>
 +  - Checking "Receives copies of meeting messages sent to me" allows the deputy to respond to meeting requests without opening the deputized person's inbox folder. He will receive a copy of the request in his inbox.
 +  - If you have checked the item** Automatically send summary of permissions to deputy**, your deputy will receive an email notification with a summary of the permissions you have set.
 +  - The **Substitute can see private items** checkbox is related to appointments, tasks, etc. that are marked as private. By default, they are not visible to deputies.
 +Substitutes who have permissions set as in the example can send emails and edit calendars on your behalf. However, these settings do not allow you to view the shared inbox folder in their Outlook and thus effectively work with deputy emails, for example. To enable this, you need to make additional settings in your mailbox (see [[de:services:email_collaboration:email_service:1windows:outlook_config:delegateaccess#berechtigungen_ueber_outlook_verwalten|Berechtigungen über Outlook verwalten]]).
 +<WRAP Center round info 80% > **Note:** If the set up delegateaccess cannot be included with the delegate, it could be because the Outlook versions are too different. </WRAP>
 +====Manage permissions via Outlook====
 +You should always set the access rights to your mailbox only for //**individual users**//.
 +The permissions for the entry **//Default (default)//** should not be changed under any circumstances, as the set permissions then apply to all users in the Exchange infrastructure. This also applies to the entry **//Anonymous//** on the mailbox level. Please do not remove the entries either, as they are required by the Exchange system, e.g. to ensure backup, etc.
 +Right-click on the top level of your mailbox (your email address) and select **Data File Properties...**.
 +{{ :de:services:email_collaboration:email_service:1windows:outlook_config:outlook_2013_datendateieigenschaften.png?200 |}}
 +If you have not already done so, under the **Permissions** tab, add your deputy to the list using the Add button. After that, click on the deputy's username and select the **Auditor** permission level in the lower part of the window. 
 +{{ :de:services:email_collaboration:email_service:1windows:outlook_config:outlook2013_postfachberechtigungen-pruefer.png?300 |}}
 +This allows the deputy to include the shared folders in Outlook and thus effectively deputize you. 
 +====Act as deputy====
 +With the described settings, your deputy can view e-mails or write e-mails and receive appointment invitations and accept them on your behalf.
 +1. open the inbox of the deputy to read emails, this is done via tab **File** -> **Open folder of another user**. 
 +{{ :en:services:email_collaboration:email_service:1windows:outlook_config:outlook2013_postbox-open.png?300 |}}
 +2. as a deputy, you can create and reply to emails on behalf of the person you are deputizing. To do this, you need to enter the email address of the person you are representing in the **From** field.
 +{{ :en:services:email_collaboration:email_service:1windows:outlook_config:outlook2013_von_feld_stellvertretung.png?300 |}}
 +3. via **Account Settings** under the menu item **File**, you can permanently include the mailbox of the person to be represented in your Outlook:
 +<WRAP Center 80%>
 + - In account settings window, double click the existing Exchange account. \\
 + - In the **Change Account** window, click **More Settings** in the bottom right corner. \\
 + - In the following window, switch to the **Advanced** tab, then click **Add**. \\
 + - In the **Add Mailbox** window, enter the primary address of the deputy. \\
 + - Close all windows by clicking **OK**. \\
 +{{ :en:services:email_collaboration:email_service:1windows:outlook_config:outlook_2013_add_mailbox.png |}}
 +After that, the mailbox will be displayed under your own according to the permissions.
