Shared Email Mailbox

What is this service?

A shared mailbox is a mailbox that multiple users can use to read and send email messages. Shared mailboxes can also be used to provide a common calendar, allowing multiple users to schedule and view vacation time or work shifts.  Shared mailboxes are accessed though existing StFX user account.   As opposed to operational accounts Shared Mailboxes do not have a password but are managed through mailbox permissions on existing accounts that can be configured by IT Services.

Why is it useful?

A shared mailbox makes it easy for a group of people to monitor and send email from a public email like itservices@stfx.ca. When a person in the group replies to a message sent to the shared mailbox, the email appears to be from the shared address, not from the individual user. 

How do I access this service?

Your can request a new shared mailbox by clicking on the "Request New shared mailbox" button to the right.  New mailboxes will follow the same approval process as generic account requests and will be automatically sent to selected member of PC Council for review and approval.
