How to Manage Delegates in the Outlook Client

Only use Delegates when a person will need to receive/process meeting requests on your behalf. If you would just like to share your Outlook Calendar, Tasks, Inbox, Contacts, Notes, or Journal with other Office 365 users, you should use "How to Share a Office 365 Mail Folder with Another Office 365 User in Outlook/OWA" instead.|
As the person granting permission, you determine the level of access that the delegate has to your folders. You can grant a delegate permission to read items in your folders or to read, create, change, and delete items. By default, when you add a delegate, the delegate has full access to your Calendar and Tasks folders. The delegate can also respond to meeting requests on your behalf.
What are the delegate permission levels?
Reviewer - With this permission, the delegate can read items in your folders.
Author - With this permission, the delegate can read and create items, and change and delete items that he or she creates. For example, a delegate can create task requests and meeting requests directly in your Task or Calendar folder and then send the item on your behalf.
Editor - With this permission, the delegate can do everything that an Author has permission to do and additionally can change and delete the items that you created.
A delegate automatically receives Send on Behalf permissions.
Messages sent with Send on Behalf permissions include both the delegate's and your names next to From.
