How to set 'Send as / Send on behalf' delegate rights in Microsoft (Office) 365?

Send as / Send on behalf delegate rights

Delegate rights are the permissions that allow one user to have full access to another user's mailbox, send messages as if they were the other user, and send messages on behalf of the other user.
