Important things to note:

1. Delegated accounts cannot be accessed via mobile applications, ONLY on computers. 

2. After a delegated email is set up, it may take a few seconds to a few hours for the changed to reflect in your account. Please refresh the tab where the account is open frequently until you see the changed have been applied.
