This sample shows you how to use the Exchange Web Services (EWS) Managed API to add delegates to an account.

Description of the Exchange 2013: Add delegate users to an email account programmatically sample

This sample gets the username and password and then adds a delegate to an Exchange account that has permission to manage the primary account's calendar.
