Using Delegation with Exchange & Office 365

Forensic Email Collector allows you to connect to a target Exchange mailbox using another user's (e.g., an administrator) credentials who has full mailbox access rights to the target mailbox.

In order to use delegation with Exchange / Office 365:

1. Enter the target email address (this is the mailbox you wish to forensically preserve):

Exchange Delegation Entering Target Mailbox Address

2. Enter the username and password for the account that has rights to access the target mailbox. In this case, instead of entering the credentials of, we are using the credentials of

Exchange Delegation using Admin Credentials

3. When you use a different set of credentials than those of the target mailbox, FEC will automatically switch to delegation mode and allow you to acquire the mailbox.
