Select User if you want the E-mail Router to connect to the Exchange Online mailbox of the user whose mail it will route. The E-mail Router will authenticate by using that user’s e-mail address, which it obtains from the Primary E-mail field of the user record that is stored in Dynamics CRM.

Select Administrator if you want to use a single set of credentials to process multiple mailboxes, or if you want to provide a different set of e-mail credentials to process individual mailboxes. If you select Administrator, the E-mail Router will use the specified credentials to connect to any mailbox within the Exchange Online tenant to send e-mail messages.

h. If you select Administrator as the user type, select either Delegate Access or Send as permission as the access type.

Delegate Access causes e-mail to be sent as "Send on behalf of" messages.

Send as permission causes e-mail to be sent as "Send As" messages.
