(O365) Delegation of Mailbox Access Rights to another user using PowerShell Commands:

Delegation of MailBox Access Rights allows users to designate another user to send mail on their behalf. For example, the service administrator can modify a user’s mailbox settings to grant “send as” permissions to administrative assistants or to enable full mailbox access for third-party applications, such as archiving applications and fax servers.Exchange Online allows service administrators to set and configure sharing
and delegate access by enabling the following mailbox permission settings:
•Full Mailbox access
•Send As access
•Send on Behalf access

Full Mailbox Access

Using full mailbox access, a user can log on to another user’s mailbox and act as the mailbox owner. This strategy is frequently used to manage resource mailboxes because resource mailboxes must be accessed by a group of users.

Send As Access

Send As permissions allow users to act as the mailbox owner for another user when sending mail. When mail is sent by a user with Send As permissions, the mail is sent from the mailbox owner and does not indicate to recipients that it was sent by a delegate and not the mailbox owner. If a user has Full Mailbox Access permissions, they may also have Send As permissions for the mailbox.

Send on Behalf Of Access

Send on Behalf Of access is similar to Send As access except that when the delegate user sends mail for the mailbox owner, the From field of the message will read “Sent on behalf of mailbox owner by delegate user.”

The Send on Behalf Of parameter sets delegate access for the specified mailboxes, and enables the default Microsoft Outlook settings for delegates, including default folder permissions and meeting request behavior.

Configure Mailbox Permissions and Access

To enable mailbox sharing and delegate access for of your Exchange Online
users, run the

Add-MSOnlineMailPermission PowerShell
cmdlet. For more information about how to run the
Add-MSOnlineMailPermission cmdlet, see Add-MSOnlineMailPermission.

Additional permissions can then be configured by using Outlook. See Allow a Delegate to Send Mail on
Your Behalf for more information about how to set mailbox permissions in

$s = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell -Credential $cred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection

You’ll get a warning about being redirected, don’t worry that is what the -AllowRedirection command is for.

Next, import the cmdlets to your local shell session:

$importresults= Import-PSSession $s

Once you are there you can run the Get-Command like the following to see all the available commands:

Get-Command -Module $importresults | Out-Host –Paging

Then run the following commands to provide permissions at the mailbox level:

Add-MailboxPermission “MailboxYouWant2Delegate” -user upn@company.com -Accessright FullAccess

How to get Scanner’s emailing after moving to Office365

Many small businesses have printers that will scan to e-mail, phone systems that will send e-mail status updates, and really a number of other e-mail enabled devices.  When converting to a cloud based e-mail system, like Office 365, sometimes these devices cannot be configured to send e-mail over encrypted links to the cloud.  Office 365 required an SMTP connection that supports TLS encryption and many legacy devices or applications don’t support this.

The solution is to install an onsite SMTP relay that supports an encrypted connection.  Fortuneately, Windows Server supports an SMTP relay for Office 365.Before you can configure the relay, you must know the exact mail server addresses to use in Office 365.  To determine those, follow this article from Mike’s blog
