Use the Delivery Options dialog box to configure a variety of delivery options for a mailbox user.

You can configure the following delivery options for a mailbox user.

Send on behalf
  • Granting this permission to other recipients allows those recipients to send e-mail messages on behalf of this mailbox user. Specifically, recipients who are granted this permission will be able to enter the mailbox user's name in the From field for the messages that they send.

    noteNote:
    The From field is not available in Microsoft Outlook Web Access. Therefore, a user cannot use Outlook Web Access to send messages on behalf of another user, even if the correct permissions are assigned.

    For example, assume that Michelle has been granted Send on behalf permissions to Karen's mailbox. Michelle sends a message to John with Karen's name in the From field. When John receives the message, it will appear as if it was sent by Karen. When John opens the message, the From field in Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Web Access will show Michelle on behalf of Karen (Figure 1).

  • Click Add to open the Select Recipient dialog box. This dialog box displays a list of all recipients in your Exchange organization. Click the recipient to whom you want to grant "send on behalf" permissions, and then click OK. You can also use the Search box to search for a specific recipient.

  • Click Remove icon to remove the "send on behalf" permissions from the selected recipient.

Forwarding address

You can automatically forward any incoming messages to another recipient:

  • Forward to   Select this check box to enable message forwarding. If you select this check box, you must then select a recipient.

  • Click Browse to open the Select Recipient dialog box. This dialog box displays a list of all recipients in your Exchange organization. Click the recipient to whom you want to forward messages, and then click OK. You can also use the Search box to search for a specific recipient.

  • Select the Deliver message to both forwarding address and mailbox check box to have a copy of the message delivered to the mailbox user as well as to the forwarding address. This check box is available only if the Forward to check box is selected. By default, when a forwarding address is configured, all messages are forwarded to the selected recipient—no messages are delivered to the mailbox user.

Recipients limits

You can configure the maximum number of recipients to whom the mailbox user is allowed to address an e-mail message:

  • Maximum Recipients   Select this check box and use the corresponding text box to specify the maximum number of recipients to whom the mailbox user is allowed to address an e-mail message. You can enter a value between 0 and 2,147,483,647. Clear this check box to remove this limit.

    importantImportant:
    Configuring this limit prevents a mailbox user from sending a message to a very large group of recipients. To learn more about limiting recipients per message, see Understanding Recipient Restrictions.
