Office 365 Outlook integration with shared mailboxes

Similar to JorgeCarvalho's suggestion to allow SharePoint mailboxes to be targeted by the Office 365 Outlook integration (https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/Flow-to-support-SPO-Site-Mailbox/idi-p/5982)

 

It would be supremely useful if we could select shared mailboxes too (and even resource mailboxes too) for Flows. At the moment, personal credentials are chosen (shared mailboxes don't have authenticable accounts).

Status: Completed

You can now both trigger on shared mailboxes and send mail from shared mailboxes. Read more here: https://flow.microsoft.com/blog/canada-mailboxes-aad/

I've not tried it, I admit, but I was considering the IMAP style syntax of:

 

  mainusername@domain.com/sharedusername@domain.com

 

It probably doesn't work inthis context, but it did get me pondering.

 

As for the UI, it would be simpler if, during the connection registration, the mailbox ID (sharedusername@domain.com) could be specified (or perhaps defaulting to your own).

 

IE: your own office 365 credentials would authenticate, but the selected mailbox would be the one specified.

Couldn't agree more. Heart Tried the Outlook.MAPIFolder FolderPath and FullFolderPath. Seemed logical, but unfortunately doesn't work. Smiley Frustrated

It is working. O365 shared mailbox have possibility to add password (Admin Portal user screens) and in flow you can add connection with shared mailbox. Just log-in in pop-up with user/psw from shared mailbox. Shared mailbox should have beed added to someone. But flow - someone is sending mail to this mailbox and flow read it and do something - is working.

Can you show me a screenshot of where to find this option for adding a password to a shared mailbox? I have just checked the new admin portal and the Exchange admin portal but I can't find any option for adding a password...
