If you are not sure if you have permission in order to send on behalf of a specific email address, please communicate with the owner of that email address or the Information Technology help desk (if you are unsure of the owner of the email address).

Once you are given permission to send an email on behalf of someone else, you may follow the steps below:

1. Start a new email message (click New E-mail)
