I am looking for any way for OS X users to use Office 365's exchange calendaring service to delegate / share a calendar with another user on Office 365.

I have researched the MS knowledge base which states that for delegation, you need both an Exchange server (which I presume Office 365 is) and either Outlook 2010 or 2013 - neither of which run on OS X. If I have to, I could get to these software to temporarily sign in and set up the delegation, but I don't want to run Windows day in and day out and need a native OS X solution.

Short of running Windows virtually day to day, can OS X users use delegation features of Office 365?

  • Wondering why there would be a Microsoft Exchange on my MBA (in mail, Contacts, Calender) with os 10.8 if one could not use it ? – Ruskes Jul 31 '13 at 8:34
  • Please specif is it for internal use only (you have internal Exchange server), or is it the 365 web application. – Ruskes Jul 31 '13 at 10:22
  • Office 365 in my mind is a cloud only service, but I'll check your link and see if perhaps I need to narrow down the wording as you ask to prevent confusion. – bmike Jul 31 '13 at 10:53

Delegate access is available in Outlook 2011 but not in Outlook Web App, nor in Apple's Mail client.

Here are the instructions:

How to set up 365 with Mac and Exchange server.

  • What client on OS X allows delegation? Only Outlook 2011 is what I'm assuming you mean - but I'm not seeing the same screens as the help article with an Office 365 account. – bmike Aug 1 '13 at 11:15
  • QUOTE: OS X Lion (10.7) or later has built-in Exchange support to set up Mac Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Notes, and Reminders to work with your Office 365 account. – Ruskes Aug 1 '13 at 12:11
  • It looks like the only client that works with Office 365 is Microsoft Outlook 2011. – bmike Aug 3 '13 at 17:54
