What are the differences between Direct Members and Users with Delegated Access?
- Have administrative access to their CalNet SPAs, including:
- Adding or removing other Direct Members in CalGroups
- Giving access to SPA-affiliated bMail accounts via Delegated Access
- Logging directly into the affiliated bMail account to send email from the SPA.
- Creating a bConnected key to access the affiliated bMail account from a mobile device
