OL97: Private Items Are Viewable by Non-Outlook Delegates

Article ID: 169871

Items marked Private in Microsoft Outlook are viewable by a delegate who uses a mail client other than Outlook, such as the Microsoft Exchange client. However, delegates using Outlook cannot view private messages.


This behavior is by design. Outlook items are only private to other Outlook users.


Assign only Outlook users as your delegates.
