The roadmap states that "Outlook for Android: Support shared mailboxes" is currently rolling out (as of July 3rd) and should be fully rolled out by the end of Q2. If our tenancy already supports Microsoft Sync Tech, what is needed for our users to start using this feature? Will it rely on an Outlook for Android app update (currently on 3.0.107), tenancy support (any powershell cmds we can run to see if it's enabled for us?), or a test track being enabled (we're currently on Targeted Release for everyone)? Really looking forward to testing this! It's a very highly sought after feature from our clients!

Hi Ross, we have the option available, curious from a mailbox permissions side what is needed?
Can a user with access to another users mailbox (for example an PA\EA) use this to add their managers mailbox to their device? If Yes, what permissions\delegation is required?

@catherine20 - the benefit of performing a slow rollout is that via telemetry and support incidents we are able to learn about the usage of a feature very quickly. In this case, we identified a few issues that made us pause the rollout while we address them. Once those fixes are checked in to the code base and deployed to the production app stores, we'll begin rollout again. Thanks for bearing with us.

Thank you for the quick reply. I feared so. Very disappointing as this is a feature our staff was keen on using.

@Ross Smith IV a écrit :
@rubenmar Correct. if you want shared/delegate access, the mailboxes must be in Exchange Online.
Will this also be possible with Exchange 2019 on premise, please?
So I understand better why with Ms Exchange 2013 and the outlook client, the content of my shared mailbox is displayed with the content of my main mailbox, also for contacts. It is terrifying that with such expensive products, Ms does not manage this defect decently. And also it's a shame, that you don't plan to hack your activesync to properly support shared boxes.
The solution for such a basic functionality is still to buy the new product and only the product online... our data are yummy for Ms ...
