In the Microsoft Outlook application, you can grant other users access to your email account using the delegates feature. When a delegate sends a message from your account, the words "On Behalf Of" appear at the top of each outgoing email. To get rid of this and make it appear like the account's owner is sending the message, a server administrator must manually grant the delegate "Send As" permissions.
