  • Question

  • is it possible to give just AD users access to a shared mailbox via webmail in an exchange 2010 environment when those users do not have mailboxes associated with their AD account? They do have full access rights to the shared mailbox.

  • Hi,
    Yes that is possible.
    Just tell the AD-User to add the Shared Mailbox primarysmtp address in the URL.
    Example: https://mail.domain.se/owa/sharedmailboxprimarysmtp@domain.com

  • Hi Shmaxolin,

    According to my experience and research, we can use AD account access to shared mailbox, as long as set properly permission.

    We can use IMAP application to access it, please try following steps:
    1. Make sure you have enabled IMAP and POP3 protocol.
    2. Change IMAP4’s authentication to “Plain test logon (Basic authentication). No…..”(open EMC--->Server Configuration--->Client Access, switch to POP3 and IMAP4, right-click IMAP4 and select Properties, then switch to Authentication)
    3. Use the following user format DomainName\Username\MailboxAlias (e.g. DOMAIN\John.Doe\Shared.Mailbox1) to log into the shared mailbox.
    More details about Access shared/delegate mailbox of Exchange Server, please refer to:

  • Hi Martina I guess this would permit either a "Mail Enabled User [has both AD and Exchange accounts]" or "Mail User [has only AD account]" to login using their domain login credentials.  However is there a way to permit a "Mail Contact [has neither AD nor Exchange account]" to also login a Shared Mailbox to send and receive mails?

    If the minimum requirement is to have at least an AD account (ie Mail User), is there a way to disable logging to AD from computers other than the ability to use Exchange online?
