Hi all

 

Hope everyone is well. I needed some help, please. So I created a dynamic Office 365 Group and it auto-added some members. I made myself the owner of the group but my user account did not fall into the scope of the dynamic membership rule. I then Teams enabled the group. My account is a member of the Team because I added myself as the group owner when creating the group. Everything seems to work ok but I noticed that my account doesn't have access to the group mailbox. It doesn't show up in my Outlook. Any ideas or advice?

It will not automatically appear in Outlook like an automapped shared mailbox, if that's what you mean. But you should be able to see it under "Groups", assuming sufficient time has passed after you added yourself as owner.
