  1. In the Email address field, type your primary address, and then click Next Step.


  1. In the confirmation message box, click Send email to grant access. Once the above steps have been completed by the person who owns the account
  2. Log in to your Gmail account.
  3. Open the confirmation email, and then click the acceptance link to activate delegated Gmail.

Congratulations! You now have access to your manager's Gmail account.

Note: There may be a brief delay before the delegation changes take effect.
