Should I use a shared mailbox for my administrator user?

Copper Contributor

Hi all.

 

I am considering creating a shared mailbox such as admin @ company .com to sign up to services we may need such as WordPress, Azure, etc.

 

Is this is a bad idea? What are the pros and cons against using my own company email myname @ mycompany .com ?

 

Only thought is the services are not tied to a specific user (should they leave or whatever). But then again, trying these things to certain users may give us more control over who has what.

 

Be great to hear others' thoughts, thank you.

As long as you don't actually assign any administrative roles to said user, you should be fine. Alternatively you can set up a DG/M365 Group and add aliases such as admin/postmaster/hostmaster therein, then assign your regular admins as members.
