A while back, we launched email delegation for customers using Google Apps for Business. Today, we're happy to bring this highly-requested feature to Google Apps and Google Apps for Education customers as well. As more universities migrate their faculty and staff to Google Apps, this feature will be particularly useful to schools as it allows administrative support staff to screen and send email on behalf of others who assign them as delegates. To enable this feature for your domain, select the Mail Delegation checkbox under Email Settings in the control panel.
With businesses and schools continuing the rapid move to the cloud, we are committed to continually releasing features like this that help streamline migration and constantly enrich the Google Apps experience.
