How to Access and Manage a Delegated Email Account in Google Mail
Google Mail allows someone to give you access to his or her account so that you can then read, send, respond to, and delete email messages on their behalf.
Try watching this Youtube video, "Setting up Gmail Delegation," for a better understanding of the process.
To access a delegated email account
Once an email account has been delegated to you (or once you have been granted access), you can begin accessing that account from your own account. To do so, complete the following steps:
- Log in to your Google Mail account.
- Click your account photo or the circle with your first initial in it (located in the upper-right corner of the page).
- From the drop-down menu, select the desired delegated account. A new window or tab will open displaying the delegated account.
To manage email in a delegated account
Follow the steps under “To access a delegated email account” above. From the new window or tab that appears, you can manage the delegated account’s email like you would manage your own email.
