Hi all,

 

Trying to figure this one out and haven't found any particular link or blog post that answers my question. For background, we're utilizing O365. I'm trying to configure database mail to use a shared mailbox but realize it does not quite have a standard user account. 

 

1. Do I need to be using a licensed mail account? Seems excessive and wasteful of a license

2. Is it possible to accomplish what I'm after with a shared mailbox?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!
