Hello,

"A shared mailbox is not designed for direct logon. The user account for the shared mailbox itself should stay in a Disabled (or "disconnected") state."

"A shared mailbox is a type of user mailbox that doesn't have its own username and password. As a result, users can't log into them directly."

What about MFA for the users accessing the shared mailbox?

Shared mailboxes are directly based on user delegation access and suppose we can protect by 2FA under user level
