Email folder sharing not working in Office 365?

January 9, 2018

So I have had this problem for a while and Microsoft hadn’t been able to figure it out until a Microsoft engineer and I knocked heads together and figured out a work around…

On one of my clients, some users could access a shared email folder and some could not, even though the permissions are exactly the same.

Long story short the fix was to give the “Folder Visible” permission on the root (the sharing users name) to the user that wants to access that folder. Only needs to be “Folder Visible”, nothing else.

Once you have that, then any permissions you have for what is essentially a subfolder of the root, will work!

MS are apparently working on a fix… I won’t hold my breath.


Office 365 emailing invoices

July 6, 2017

I had a client that wanted this so I looked into it and found the following;

  • Login as an admin
  • Go to Billing
  • Go to Billing notifications
  • Toggle on or off for emailing ALL admins.

Unfortunately at this time there is no way to select which users will get the notifications. It will email ALL admins regardless of their admin role.
