can we get weekly email from the shared mailbox using flow
Thanks for your post
Removing the semicolon (;) after the mailbox address gave me access to the folders on the shared inbox
This is one of those tricks "tick the box" to work properly
how we can get weekly email from shared mailbox using flow for the quarantine messages
Is it possible to create a flow that would trigger when a new mail comes on a shared mailbox?
I've seen several posts in here that people got it to work, but I don't understand how to set it up.
I've tried the "reset password" on a shared mailbox but could never login using the shared box credentials.
What am I missing? Is the feature supported?
Hi, I followed the instructions above and gave the shared mailbox a password.
I then logged in to Flow using my account and then added the shared mailbox as per above.
My settings are to send an automatic reply to any email coming into the shared mailbox, for any sender so long as it contains an attachment.
So far so good, but...
a) when I test it I do not receive the automatic reply (yet the the system test says it works)
b) it is changing my own automatic reply on my mailbox and turning that on.
If I disconnect the connection for my own mailbox, the test fails.
I've used this new option and it's working perfectly.
You don't need to setup any password or login into another account.
When you start a new flow with your normal account, just search for the words "shared mailbox" and this option apears.
Thank you @Austin828
Just to add even more clarity for those who stumble upon the Shared Mailbox template - dont use the template....!
As mentioned by others, create a brand new Flow with a new trigger, look for "shared mailbox", select it and specify the shared mailbox email address there. Ensure your account of course has access to the shared mailbox. Do not enable the account / set password for a shared mailbox, as it may impact your licenses, etc (shared mailbox must have the underlying account disabled).
Can anyone help me with this please? I am also trying to create a flow for a shared mailbox so that when an email is received by us, it sends an email reply (template) back to the sender on every ocassion.
I have started a new flow, using 'when a new email arrived in a shared mailbox' entered the shared mailbox address address and have moved to the next option which I believe is meant to use the 'Reply to email (V3)' option?
I have written my reply email (template) but what do I put in the Message Id box? I have tried selecting the dynamic content 'From' but the flow does not work.
Update: The flow is duplicating the message I receive, it is not sending my template email to the sender.
What have I done wrong please - a step by step guide would probably help everyone here!
I would like to add to this. Using the shared mailbox definitely works. The issue I have now is that the auto-reply that gets sent out shows the sender of the connector email address and not the shared email address. Anyone run into this or have a solution?
Edit: I was able to resolve this by changing the "send an email" condition with "Send an email from a shared mailbox" condtion.
Actually, for an Office 365 shared mailbox you can indeed have a password. Just requires a trick less known and has to be done a certain way when initially setup. First create the mailbox as a User, then use the menu option in the Exchange admin portal to convert it to a shared mailbox (often done when a user leaves). You'll notice while you have your new shared mailbox, the old user remains. And these two actually remain connected. If you set or change the password on the old user account (don't require any licenses still assigned), this password works to log into a shared mailbox. I always setup my shared mailboxes this way just in case I have a need to login via password, which used to be the only way to connect it on a mobile device for example.
All that said, I don't seem to actually need to input the password in Flow if I'm logged in with an account that is a member of that shared mailbox. So that is the trick. You can simply enter the shared mailbox name and if prompted to authenticate again, again its just entering the credentials for the account that has access to that shared mailbox.
Although as a global admin you can reset the password for a shared mailbox, but this is not supported by Microsoft. A shared mailbox does not have an office 365 license assigned to it, so it's not a "valid" account.
@agneum , That's correct. A shared mailbox can be accessed by one or more office 365 account(s) -with a valid office 365 license - and full access permission to that shared mailbox.
Signing in: A shared mailbox is not intended for direct sign-in by its associated user account. You should always block sign-in for the shared mailbox account and keep it blocked.
