Office 365, Shared Archive Mailbox to multiple users
Posted on 2012-12-31
We have a shared mailbox which has an Archive Mailbox associated with it. What is the proper way to grant permissions to a mailbox for a group of users? I am finding that if I grant permissions to a mailbox for a user directly via the Add-MailboxPermission cmdlet, that the user is able to see the additional mailbox and associated archive mailbox in their Outlook client without issue.
I tried to use the same cmdlet but instead of specifying the individual user, I specified a distribution group. I am finding that the additional mailbox can be added to the profile without issue, however the Archive Mailbox does NOT show up via this method.
What is the proper way to have both show up when you want to share out a mailbox and an associated archive mailbox to a group of users? The distribution group method doesn't seem to work in this scenario.
