We have the following case inside our Office 365 tenant:-

  1. Shared mailbox

  2. Inside the Shared mailbox >> we define a mail-enabled security group as a Member of the Shared mailbox.

  3. the mail-enabled security group contains 8 users

Now inside a SharePoint group >> we grant the Shared mailbox Read access to the SharePoint site>> but the 8 users inside the mail-enabled security group, did not get access to the SharePoint site through the Shared mailbox.. so is our setting supported?

Thanks

Hi @john john ,

 

As far as I know, this is not supported. You should add members directly to the Microsoft 365 group of your SharePoint site.
