Block reminders/tasks from a shared mailbox in Office 365
Posted on 2014-03-12
I have tried searching for a solution to this but not come across anything so far.
Basically we have an Office 365 setup (Exchange PLan1) for a number of mailboxes. All working fine but with 1 anomaly that is causing major annoyance.
We have a few shared mailboxes that are accessed by a number of users. For some of these users, they only really need an overview of the mailbox but in given them full access in the Office365 control panel, not only do they get access, they also get bombarded with all of the reminders and task items that get merged in with their own.
Is there any way to suppress the reminders etc coming from a shared mailbox?
TO clarify, lets say we have a mailbox that is email@example.com. In the control panel we have added Full Mailbox Access permissions for firstname.lastname@example.org This brings the mailbox into the supervisors Outlook 2010 client as we used to have when using our old on-premises Exchange 2003 server, however in the past the supervisor did not get the admin@ mailboxes reminders etc.
Is there a way we can remove these reminders, or is there a better way of achieving mailbox access without the reminders?
