Hi there,

I wonder if this is a feature or bug in Outlook 2016 for Mac. But after migrating from Apple Mail to Outlook 2016 we notice that when we create a new email we get a list of users to choose from. This list only show up when we activate Shared Calendars.

Apple Mail and Webmail doesn't give us the same results and I double check the shared/delegate status. So I guess it must be a Microsoft thing Rolling Eyes .

I included a screen-shot with the list of users when creating a new email. There is only one account configured named "Mass IT", others are activated through Shared Calendars.

Hope somebody can help us out cause its quite annoying.

It's not a bug. It's a feature called Delegation. Smile You are able to send emails on behalf of these users.

Hi Mathijs,

While 'B-Tom' is correct that delegation does allow uses to send on behalf of people, you can get the behavior you are seeing from giving someone not just 'delegation' permissions but from 'Sharing' permissions as well.

A shared calendar does give the user a drop down option in the from feild, this is a 'Quirk' of Outlook for Mac. If you are worried about uses being able to send as someone else when they have not been given the rights to do so then you can enable the 'Anti-Spoofing' feature in Kerio Connect:

This will then still allow delegated users to be able to send out as another user but it will stop people that just have share rights to a users calendar from being able to send out as the other user.

I hope this helps,
