  • Member of a queue with an outbound email address

If your administrator granted you permission, you can send an email on behalf of a queue.

Tip: If you want to send emails on behalf of the same queue, before sending your first email, configure on behalf of queue to remember your queue selection.

  2. Select EmailNew Interaction type selection
  3. In the On Behalf of Queue box, type a queue name.
