Every kid is different. DD#1 started seperation anxiety at 4 months - she cried non-stop for everyone until I came back (even Daddy). Until she was 18 months I couldn't leave her at all because she literally would not stop crying. She was my only baby so it didn't bother me much.
DD#2 never did seperation anxiety until she was 18 months old. We thought we'd missed out on that stage and then it hit us and she only now at 2 1/2 is doing better with it. She doesn't mind Daddy being with her. And with enough warm up time she does fine with Grandma's but she won't go near anyone else as a general rule.
DS - he started seperation anxiety at 4 months (he is so much like his oldest sister it isn't funny). He will tolerate Daddy for about 2-3 hours before he becomes inconsolible which is good because sometimes I just don't want to drag 3 kids with me to the store. Anyone else is no go right now. If a stranger (especially babies for some reason) look at him he starts bawling. Every one at preschool pick up knows to not look at his face or he'll cry and the people with other babies know not to stand too close to me. He is by far the worst with strangers of all 3 of my kids.
