Outlook: Private Outlook Emails

If you've delegated Inbox access to another person in Microsoft Outlook, to send a private message:

  1. Create a new email message in Outlook.

  2. In Outlook 2010, click the Options tab. In the lower right-hand corner of the "More Options" section in the toolbar, click the arrow.


  3. In the drop-down list under "Sensitivity", select Private.

Private objects can be seen only by the account owner, not by delegates.

By default, a delegate gets the role of Editor only on calendar and task folders, and cannot see anything in the Inbox unless Delegate can see my private items is checked. Also, a delegate who has been given an Owner role can see private objects such as mail messages, calendar appointments, task items, or contact items. Because of this, you should not delegate more permissions than necessary.
