Add mailbox to current account (No Send-As)

These instructions are for shared mailboxes on the Office 365 system, with addresses like engr-<something>@uconn.edu. If your mailbox is still something@engr.uconn.edu, please contact the ECS helpdesk so it can be migrated.

Students will need a student worker account to access shared mailboxes – if you do not have one, a supervising staff member must contact the ECS helpdesk to have one created for you.

Note: if you need to be able to send mail from the shared mailbox, do not use this option.
