A distribution list is a group of email addresses to which you can send messages. It’s a convenient way to send messages to multiple people without typing out each email address individually. However, there are some drawbacks to using a distribution list. For example, if someone on the list replies to an email, everyone will see their response. This can be disruptive if people start chiming in with their comments and questions. Another downside is that distribution lists need their mailbox. You can’t save or organize messages in a central location. If you’re looking for a way to overcome these drawbacks, you can convert your distribution list into a shared mailbox. In this article, we’ll show you how to do it.
Converting a distribution list to a shared mailbox
To convert a distribution list to a shared mailbox, you must create a new one in the Exchange admin centre. Once the shared mailbox has been completed, you need to add the distribution list as a member of the shared mailbox. To do this, go to the member’s tab of the shared mailbox and click on the + sign. Then, in the search box, please type in the name of the distribution list and select it from the results. Once the distribution list has been added as a member, you need to set its delivery options to deliver messages to the shared mailbox. To do this, go to the delivery options tab of the distribution list and select “Deliver messages to both my Inbox and the Shared Mailbox.”
How to set up a shared mailbox
Setting up a shared mailbox is easy and only takes a few minutes. Here’s how:
1. Log in to your account as an administrator.
2. Go to the “Shared Mailboxes” section.
3. Click on the “Add Mailbox” button.
4. Enter the email address of the shared mailbox you want to create, then click on the “Create” button.
5. Enter the name and description of the shared mailbox, then click on the “Save” button.
That’s it! Your shared mailbox is now set up and ready to be used by all team members.
A shared mailbox can be a great way to manage email for a team or group, and it’s easy to convert a distribution list into a shared mailbox. Just follow the steps in this article, and you’ll have your new shared mailbox up and running in no time.
