Smart tags are permission based folders used to share email data, where you aren't the sender or recipient. They could also include other mailboxes that you've access to (e.g. a delegate mailbox).


Permission to access smart tag is controlled by your Administrators. If enabled by your Administrators, they can also be used to display files that have been archived from your documents, folders, and shared network drives.

Messages that have been sent through Mimecast and have had their sensitivity level changed (i.e. to personal or private) are not displayed in the Delegate Mailbox tag.
