Setting up a Shared Mailbox from Office 365 on a mobile device (without using IMAP)

Getting a Shared Mailbox from Office 365 in the desktop Outlook App is quite easy. As long as the user has the right permissions to the mailbox, it will automatically appear to the left in their Outlook sidebar. Getting the Shared Mailbox to work on a mobile device on the other hand, is a whole other story. Especially if you do not want to use the more widely known method of using IMAP. Which makes you lose support for the Calendar and Contacts for instance. Also, it’s way more typing involved with technical server addresses and other non-user friendly settings.

The method explained here is very easy and gives the Shared Mailbox the exact same functionality as any normal licensed mailbox account, except from actually having to use or have a separate license. (Since Shared Mailboxes are license-free in Office 365.)

How to force OWA regional language settings in Exchange Server 2013


Sometimes you don’t want the end-user to choose the regional language settings when they start Outlook Web App (OWA – former Outlook Web Access). Luckily there is a way to force user-mailboxes to a predefined language setting, both individual user mailboxes and all users. This can be accomplished by using Exchange Management Shell (EMS – PowerShell) and the command: Get-MailboxRegionalConfiguration and Get-Mailbox.

I’m guessing you already have checked the settings under ECP – mail flow -> accepted domains/recieve connectors and send connectors. Including the Exchange 2013 HelpConfigure Mail Flow and Client Access (TechNet) for any other settings you might have forgotten.
