Microsoft Outlook allows you to have an assistant help you manage your incoming electronic mail as you would have them manage your paper mail, as well as coordinate your schedule in an Outlook calendar. I work with many busy attorneys who have delegated these functions so that they can free up time to work on more pressing matters. It is very easy to set this up.
In the top left corner of your inbox click on File, then Account Settings.
Once you click on Account Settings, choose Delegate Access.
This will bring up the pop up box below. Click the Add button on the right and type in the person you wish to have delegation rights. Once you add them, you will be directed to choose their permissions. You can choose any of the following permissions for them depending upon how much access you would like them to have.
