Email delegation now available for HNPfriar.org

posted Feb 27, 2011, 10:31 AM by James McIntosh

Friars can now allow a secretary, assistant or anyone they want to access their e-mail account. This can be another HNP friar or anyone with a GMail account.

To enter a delegate, users can select the 'Accounts' tab under 'Settings' in Gmail and click 'Add another account' to enter their delegate's email address. 

Once the delegate is signed into their own own Gmail account, they can then access the other person's account from the account selection menu at the top of Gmail.
