Office 365 can I use portal to read mail in shared mailbox


I know how to access a shared mailbox by opening another mailbox when I have permissions and all works fine.

But is it possible to check mail if I login directly to the shared mailbox.

I have managed to login to the mailbox, but it has no tiles, only store?  i.e. mail is the one I want.

Do I have to give it a licence?

I know how to do that, but I have dozens of people that I want to give occasional access to the shared mailbox, and I don't want to give them the permissions.

I guess the answer is to use a normal mailbox and a licence.

thanks Terry

Login in directly is not supported and against the license agreement. Yes, it is possible, but you should not be doing it. Use the "open another mailbox" functionality from a licensed mailbox or similarly, use the "Add shared folder..." functionality.
