The original blog is here https://www.neroblanco.co.uk/2015/04/the-shared-mailbox-dilemma/ and to […]

Guest Accounts not receiving email notifications In truth, this blog could have been called anything.  Probably the Guest Account dilemma, but I have used that kind of title a few times now, none the less – it is a dilemma.  This is a blog I have been wanting to write for ages, because it has […]

27th February, 2018

Today a client that we had previously migrated off Lotus Notes asked us about applying Groups to their Shared Mailboxes in Office 365 but ensuring that the Shared Mailbox Owners had the ability modify those Groups to provide access. This blog very much goes hand in hand with this blog I wrote on Shared Mailboxes, […]

NeroBlanco Lotus Notes to O365 MaaS

6th February, 2018

We’re often asked why our Migration as a service offering is more advantageous than any on-premises solution an organisation could wish to deploy.   Typically if a company has decided to host their email in the Microsoft cloud they have already familiarised & accepted all the certifications which Microsoft abides by in their services,  like […]
