E-mail forwarding from DL to Shared Mailbox

Copper Contributor

Hello,

 

I don't see an option on office 365 to forward e-mails from a Distribution List. 

 

I created a shared mailbox to which I'd like all the e-mails going to this DL, to be forwarded to it.

 

Anyone knows how to do this?

Hi Chris,

Why not add the shared mailbox to the DL itself? L

Could also look at transport rules in EAC to send a copy to the shared mailbox.

Yes, just go to the DL and have the shared mailbox added as a "Member" of the group and you should be good to go.

@Chris Webbthis did not work 

any other suggestions? 

Hi @gtecce ,

 

You should add the email you want to forward to the member list. Below are the steps.

In a situation, where we need to configure mail forwarding on a MailUniversalDitributionGroup Name 'GroupA' to another recipient type MailUniversalDitributionGroup Name 'GroupB' within the same tenant / DOmain, I guess this solution isn't applicable, isn't it? Group object nesting is not supported as a member in this context. Any alternatives?
