Hybrid customer always complaint about the fact that Office 365 users not being able to delegate access to On-prem (Or) On-prem users not being able delegate to Office 365.

  • For on-prem user to become a delegate of an Cloud user

Set-OrgnizationConfig -ACLableSyncedObjectEnable $True

  • For cloud user to become a delegate of an on-prem user

msExchRecipientDisplayType attribute for the remote mailbox in on-prem AD to be set to -1073741818

       Get-ADUser -Properties msExchRecipientDisplayType |         where {$_.msExchRecipientDisplayType -eq -2147483642} | Set-ADUser -Replace            @{msExchRecipientDisplayType = -1073741818}
