The AddDelegate operation adds one or more delegates to a principal's mailbox and sets specific access permissions.

The AddDelegate operation can use the SOAP headers that are listed and described in the following table.

Header

Element

Description

Impersonation

ExchangeImpersonation

Identifies the user whom the client application is impersonating.

MailboxCulture

MailboxCulture

Identifies the RFC3066 culture to be used to access the mailbox.

RequestVersion

RequestServerVersion

Identifies the schema version for the operation request.

ServerVersion

ServerVersionInfo

Identifies the version of the server that responded to the request.

Description

The following example of an AddDelegate request shows an attempt to give user1 delegate permissions on folders that are owned by user2. User1 is given Author-level permissions to user2's Calendar folder and Reviewer-level permissions to user2's Contacts folder. User1 will not receive copies of meeting messages and will be unable to view private items in user2's mailbox. Meeting requests will be sent to both user1 and user2.

        <m:DelegateUserResponseMessageType ResponseClass="Error">
          <m:MessageText>The user is already a delegate for the mailbox.</m:MessageText>
          <m:ResponseCode>ErrorDelegateAlreadyExists</m:ResponseCode>
          <m:DescriptiveLinkKey>0</m:DescriptiveLinkKey>
        </m:DelegateUserResponseMessageType>
      </m:ResponseMessages>
      </m:AddDelegateResponse>
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

Comments

If the ErrorDelegateAlreadyExists response code is returned when you try to add a delegate, use the GetDelegate operation to get all the current permissions for the delegate, and then use the UpdateDelegate operation to set the new permissions.
