UMD faculty and staff can grant a colleague access to their UMD Gmail account by setting up mail delegation. Mail delegation allows an appointed delegate to access your Gmail and execute the following actions:
Send or reply to emails that were sent to you. When they send a message, their email address will show. For example, the sender will show as "sent by email@example.com."
Read messages sent to you
Delete messages sent to you
View and add to your contacts
Mail delegation is recommended for faculty and staff who wish to share access to their Gmail account with a limited number of colleagues.
