Enable or disable the "Send Email on Your Behalf" feature in Microsoft Outlook from the "Delegate Access" option. The "Delegate Access" option allows you to grant certain privileges to other users, such as access to your calendar, sending e-mails on your behalf or access to certain folders in your mailbox. This feature is useful for people who need other people to send e-mails on their behalf, but not necessarily have full access to the user's in-box. When someone has an access to send e-mail on someone's behalf, they can read replies to that e-mail, but not other messages.
