Flow to support SPO Site Mailbox

Hi,

 

Would like to trigger some flows from emails received by a SharePoint Site mailbox.

When I try adding a mailbox, I'm prompted for my credentials, which links my personal account, but I can't see a way of linking to another shared mailbox. I can't authenticated as the site mailbox.

 

Cheers,

JC

 

Edit on 2018/March/01:

 

thanks for the prompt @Karuana.

the original suggestion was from 2016, status updated to under review in March 2017, and now that SPO Mailboxes are deprecated, not much point in pursuing this.

 

The core intent of the idea was to have a suitable alternative to the document library email address features we had on-prem.

those were great, and in my anedoctal experience, heavily used.

Thsi goes for groups as well.  One should be able to monitor any email box one has access to.  This will enable many "service" scenarios.

This would be a killer feature.

Yes, would be a great feature. It will form a very logical link between team mailboxes and team sites.

This feature would be essential. I don’t understand that it isn’t already there!

If you have permission to send emails from the site mailbox, you can use the site mailbox as the 'FROM' address in advanced options and it will work. It would save a lot of time if site mailboxes send permissions could be managed in SharePoint instead of exchange.

It didn't work when I tested it before. Can you send a complete example of a test with screenshots?

As a matter of fact, I thought that would be the way to do it and I found that any from address other than blank made the flow constantly fail.

If a new feature is added, MS should comment on this idea.

on the other hand, do you mean "To".  It doesn't make sense to use the "From" email address as the maessage is from john.q.public@domain.com To the shared mailbox.  

 

If flow indeed uses the "From" address to filter this, things are broken.

As before, whenever I put an address in the "To" block, the flow fails to work.  If somebone can post of an example of a flow that properly filters emails by "To" that would be great.
