There are two ways to fix the Delegate Access problem. The first is by changing it online, and the second is by changing it back to online and then synchronizing.
1] Change Delegate Access:
You can rewrite the Access Control Lists (ACLs) at the mailbox level to propagate changes to folders by granting, applying, and then removing Delegate access.
- File > Account Settings > Delegate Access
- Click ‘Add’ and select any user from the global address list.
- Click OK on the Permissions page, click Apply, and then click OK again.
Remove the user you added in step 2 from your delegate access.
2] Online Method:
If this doesn’t work, you can fix it by going to the calendar app in Outlook Web and changing the sharing permissions. Once you’ve done that, you can reopen the Outlook app and the changes should be reflected.
What does Delegate Access do?
