Enabling Site Mailboxes App in SharePoint Site and Connecting to Outlook Profile
In the next post of the series, we’ll enable the site mailbox feature in a demo SharePoint site that two users are members of and are collaborating both via email and a document library in the demo site.
First a site collection administration will need to enable the site mailboxes app which is now available as shown below after select the settings cog in the top right corner of the site and selecting “Site Content”
After navigating to the site contents section as a site collection administrator, click “Add an App”
Select “Site Mailbox” highlighted in the image below.
After selection of the Site Mailbox sharepoint app, you’ll notice a new option in the left hierarchy labeled as “Mailbox”
A redirect to will take place and prompt for authentication as shown below.
After successful authentication you will be prompted with a message stating that your site mailbox is being created.
And finally when completed in the background, you are presented with the following messages signifying that the site mailbox has been successfully created.
We’ll give the environment some time to create the site mailbox and return in part 6 with the client side experience….
